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.

Great pinot noir from California. I visit that winery and it was good. Forest floor, truffles and earthy. — 2 months ago

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. Theme was “bring something good”. All wines (minus the bubbles and SB) were tasted blind.
This was super intense and perfumed. Young. Feel like there may be some use of whole cluster here? Massive amount of ripe black cherries, cola, potpourri and sandalwood. Acidic, with very compact fruit alongside some herbal/stemmy? notes. Thanks, @Weston Eidson . — 2 months ago
