Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2019 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard offers up an enticing mélange of white flowers, orchard fruit, mint and sage, along with light tropical inflections that add an exotic flair. Layered and exquisite in its beauty, the 2019 is the highlight in this flight of Chardonnays from Arista. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2022)

Perli Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

17’ Arista Perli Vineyards Chardonnay. One of only 18 vineyards on top of an AVA that was just created in 1997. Decanted for an hour. Medium gold in color. Bright pear & stone fruits, spices on the nose. “Sells it”. Pear, yellow apple, honey, pinenuts, moderate acidity/oak. with lively texture flowing through the finish. Unlike Matts Ferren Wines, these aren’t as big in the shoulders. Beautifully balanced Chardonnay. Worth checking out the entire Chardonnay line up since 2016’s. Cheers. Edit- This wine will taste even better in 2021+ — 2 years ago

Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2019 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is a very pretty and complex appellation-level wine. Apricot, chamomile, dried flowers, mint, hazelnut and honey are nicely pushed forward. This deceptively mid-weight Chardonnay packs a pretty good punch. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2022)

Toboni Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Fruity compared to their single vineyard Pinots. Went well with chicken pesto. Celebrating the start of daycare for Sophia! — 3 months ago

La Cruz Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Bright crimson in color with a bouquet of ripe raspberries and strawberries with subtle hints of rose pedals. The wine is true to its California roots with bright acidity and a core of ripe fruit; tart cranberries, red raspberry, red currant cola and dried dates. The tannins are silky and smooth with a finish that runs as long as the river valley it hails. — 2 years ago

Aubert

Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

15’ Aubert Ritchie. Best Ritchie I’ve enjoyed from Mark to date? 🤷🏻‍♂️ Medium + bodied. Beautifully balanced Chardonnay. White peach, splash of pineapple core, apricot, white toast, sprinkle in a bit of floral spices. 3 favorites from this vineyard are Château Boswell- Arista- Aubert. Cheers. -at BLT Honolulu, Hawaii — 3 years ago
