Tasting the Ramsay Cabernet Sauvignon is like tasting the Napa Valley. The nose is rich with brambleberry cherry vanilla and tobacco notes. The mouth follows through with matched flavors plus the rich character of good oak. The mouth-feel of the wine is round and full but not excessively tannic or hot.

Since its modest beginnings, the Kent Rasmussen Winery has evolved into one of the most important producers in the Napa region. The winery outgrew its tractor shed barrel room on Cuttings Wharf Road in the Napa Carneros long ago. In 1995, Kent and Celia established a new winemaking facility in a turn of the century slaughterhouse, on the Silverado Trail in St. Helena. Refined over the years, it now houses business offices, an enology lab and lab tasting room, a wine library and upgraded production equipment. The modern crusher, press, tanks, catwalks, refrigeration systems, pumps, forklift and fruit sorter have greatly enhanced winemaking options. Grapes are either estate grown or under long term contract with reliable growers.
