Great bottle. Need a few more Chardonnay MAGS from them. Especially with just a bit of age on them.

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 — 2 years ago

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+ — a year ago

Just the perfect balance of fruit & acidity to this wine. Wait at least a year before enjoying a bottle after release — 8 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. — a year ago

UV-Lucky Well Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Ate leftovers from Dry Creek Kitchen dinner on 5/28/19 in our room (16) at Farmhouse Inn. Lamb chops, kale salad, mushrooms, pasta salad, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. All delicious. Wine perfect pairing. — 2 years ago
