The 2005 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard shows crushed rock white currant citrus oil pineapple peach and apricot characteristics. Long rich and deep with strong acidity it should be consumed over the next 4-5 years. One of Northern California's most successful winemakers/consultants David Ramey's personal winery continues to go from strength to strength. Ramey has had the best of both worlds working in Bordeaux for the Moueix family and in California at Dominus Chalk Hill and Rudd Estate. Ramey has two hierarchies of Chardonnays his generic appellations as well as his single vineyard cuvees.Previously recommended: 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Jericho Canyon (94) 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal (95+) 2004 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard (91) 2004 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard (94) 2004 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard (93).Tel.

Stunningly complex bouquet offers ripe citrus and orchard fruits smoky minerals saffron white flowers and anise. Deeply concentrated but suave and fresh with energetic pear and tangerine flavors complicated by anise and chalky minerality. This reaches every nook and cranny of the palate delivering serious flavor impact. The finish refuses to let go with the smoke and anise qualities repeating.

Honey, almonds, smoke, mint, orange zest and burnt sugar blossom in a rich, textured Chardonnay that is peaking today. This is a gorgeous example of fine, aged California Chardonnay at its best.
