The Red Car Chardonnay from the famous Ritchie Vineyard is a spectacular wine in 2015. The old Wente clones are amongst the oldest and most prized in Sonoma and this is the fourth year Red Car has produced this wine from Ritchie Vineyard. It opens with gorgeous aromas of key lime custard, honey, ripe apple, white peach, fresh herbs, toasted almond and white flowers which all develop in the glass. On the palate this is rich, creamy and full-bodied, backed by tart acidity and pure fruit flavors as it displays excellent focus and precision through the log finish. This is a total knockout that checks all the boxes. Amazing today and should even become more compelling with bottle age.
