Review

From vines planted in 1972, the 2015 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is one of the gems in the lineup. Rocking notes of caramelized citrus, lemon curd, salty minerality and loads of marzipan characteristics, full body, a rich, powerful texture, and great elegance all make for a sensational Russian River Chardonnay. Like all these wines from Ramey, it has the balance and fruit to drink nicely today and the class to evolve for over a decade.
