2006 Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard, Russian River Valley
Ronn Wiegand's Restaurant Wine
Issue #128, Vol. 21, No. 1
The Ritchie is somewhat lighter than either the Hyde or Hudson, but is very well balanced and finely flavored, with a very long finish reminiscent of lemon peel, roasted nut, baked bread, vanilla, baked pear, and lime.
