    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, sourced almost completely from the Ritchie Vineyard (99% Ritchie, 1% Wayfarer Farm), located outside of the town of Forestville, is another stunning example of how good wines from the Sonoma Coast appellation can become. This wine offers complex, mouth filling flavors of citrus, tropical fruit, leesy minerality and spice. The creamy oak and bright acidity balance these rich flavors perfectly.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast (1,100 cases) exhibits wonderful tropical fruit notes interwoven with pineapple, buttered citrus, and leesy, brioche-like characteristics. This complex effort is capable of lasting for 7-8 years. Most of the fruit for this cuvee comes from an old Wente clone planted in the Ritchie Vineyard. 92-94 points

    The Wine Advocate

    Slightly hazy yellow-gold color. Enticing nose combines ripe pineapple, ripe citrus and spices. Dense and thick but minerally and fresh, with sweet tropical fruit, apricot and spice flavors enlivened by pineappley acidity. A big boy at 15.2% alcohol but with sound backbone.
