2010 Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard, Russian River Valley
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
The 2010 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is a bit brighter and more focused than the Hudson. There is a sense of energy and focus in the 2010 that is remarkable. Sweet floral and spiced notes resonate on the finish. Saline overtones add to an impression of briskness and raw energy, especially on the finish. This is another fabulous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
