Tasting Notes

On the nose, notes of ripe golden apple, white peach, and Meyer lemon entwine with subtle hints of toasted hazelnuts and a delicate wisp of vanilla. The palate is greeted by a blend of luscious orchard fruits and citrus zest, supported by a subtle creaminess from its expertly managed neutral oak fermentation. Layers of complexity emerge as flavors of honeyed pear, crème brûlée, and a touch of flint unfold gracefully, leading to a long, vibrant finish.


The Ritchie Vineyard in Sonoma, California, stands as a testament to Kent Ritchie’s enduring passion and commitment, spanning decades of meticulous care. The unique soil composition and cool, foggy climate result in fruit with natural minerality and balanced acidity, creating wines that are fresh, vibrant, and lively.
