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. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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.

Aromas of lemon zest, wild herbs and minerals. Dense, thick and savory, showing an exotic orange blossom note and a building floral element from the small percentage of Chardonnay Musqué vines but still quite youthfully tight, with a dominant flavor of crushed rock. This baby, from what David Ramey describes as "a big crop, but nice," needs time. -- Stephen Tanzer

Wine Spectator, June 2017
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. Drink now through 2020. 1,240 cases made.–JL
