Ramey Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Wine EnthusiastFrom older vines planted in the early 1970s, this is a knockout, standout wine, juicy and exotic in spicy lemongrass, lime and voluptuous intensity. Richly layered, it has a backbone of fresh acidity that keeps it intriguingly fresh and classically structured. In the end, it's supremely delicious.
Wine SpectatorA firm, mineral-filled version, backed by powerful acidity, featuring rich toasty notes to the baked apple and dried pear flavors, with savory touches. Buttery accents emerge on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2025. 898 cases made.
