2014 Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard, Russian River Valley
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate

Youthfully mute at this primary stage, the 2014 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard offers suggestions of lemon curd, white peaches and white grapefruit with underlying notes of honeyed toast and butterscotch. The palate is full-on seduction with an appealingly oily texture and tons of peaches and cream flavors, finishing long with a lively lift.
