Critical Acclaim


Wine Enthusiast

From blocks of old Wente vines planted in the 1970s, this producer and site continue to find beautiful synergy together. This wine shows high-toned floral notes around full-bodied richness and flavors of crème brûlée and anise. A salty accent begs for attention as a kick of citrus finishes with grace and freshness.


Robert Parker's 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.


Wine Spectator

Elegant and stylish, with a trim mix of honeydew, green apple, gravelly earth and light oak notes. An understated style that will benefit from cellaring.
