RED CAR CHARDONNAY, RITCHIE VINEYARD, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2014
NVWE Notes: A picture of subtly rich elegance, the nose of this beauty opens gradually, to reveal scents of white peach, tarte tatin, lemon curd, pineapple core, lychee, white rose, toasted meringue, hazelnut nougat and baking spices. It is both supple and tongue-coating in the mouth, where flavors of Meyer lemon zest, lemon cream pie, white peach pit, baked green apple, vanilla wafer, brioche, meringue, nutmeg and hazelnut find a pretty, lingering harmony. If already a perfect companion to Frutti di Mare , Chicken Tetrazzini and the like, it should be better still in another eighteen months. 500 cases produced.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2014 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is rich, ample and creamy, with notable depth from the 45 year-old vines. A wine of striking texture and nuance the Ritchie hits all the right notes. This is another superb wine in this range from Red Car and proprietor Carroll Kemp. Candied lemon, chamomile, white flowers and chalk meld into the super-expressive finish. This is another stand out. Sadly, the 2015 is the last vintage for this wine at Red Car.
