    94 Points, Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator: "A firm, mineral-filled version, backed by powerful acidity, featuring rich toasty notes to the baked apple and dried pear flavors, with savory touches. Buttery accents emerge on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2025. 898 cases made." 06/19

    Critics

    Wine Advocate Notes
    95+ Points, Erin Brooks, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pow! The nose of the 2016 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is gregarious with loads of melon, guava, peach and buttery touches plus lemon curd, pastry crust and caramel hints. Medium to full-bodied, it packs in a wallop of flavor layers-from luscious ripe fruits to bakery and mineral notes-framed by absolutely mouthwatering acidity and phenolic texture and finishing very long with amazing energy. Grapes for this wine come from vines planted in 1972. It fermented in barrel with bâtonnage and aged in 22% new French oak for 20 months. 898 cases produced, to be released in October 2019." 04/19
    Antonio Galloni
    95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is a standout in this range. Perfumed aromatics make a strong opening statement; white flowers, mint and white peach are all beautifully lifted. Refined and elegant to its core, the 2016 Ritchie is a fabulous wine. Don't miss it. (Drink between 2020-2028)" 05/19

    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    95 Points, Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast: "From older vines planted in the early 1970s, this is a knockout, standout wine, juicy and exotic in spicy lemongrass, lime and voluptuous intensity. Richly layered, it has a backbone of fresh acidity that keeps it intriguingly fresh and classically structured. In the end, it's supremely delicious." 11/19
