RAMEY CHARDONNAY RITCHIE '16RAMEY CHARDONNAY KENT RITCHIE VINEYARD RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2016
NVWE Notes: Sophisticated, elegant and rich, the aromas of this classy bottling suggest that it is built for grand cuisine. The nose is a sleek, forthcoming perfume of peach tart, tarte tatin, dried golden fig, honey-drenched hazelnut and nougat, with hints of orange marmalade and preserved lemon in the background. It is cutting dry, intense and racy on the palate, as chalky mineral notes underpin all that ripe fruit to create a focused balance and temper the long-lasting flavors. Terrific dinner wine already, it will grow in dimension and class for another another year or two. 898 cases produced.
