International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($80; 15.6% alcohol with a pH of 3.4; from old Wente clones) Medium yellow. Aromas of lemon drop, wild herbs and honey, with a slightly candied character. Dense and thick but lively, with strong acidity and a floral element lifting the concentrated citrus fruit flavors. The wine's sweetness and silky texture are leavened by its firm acid spine, with a late note of green tea contributing piquancy. Actually rather backward today, with the dry, broad, citric finish showing superb persistence.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 187

The 2007 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard reveals superb minerality and acidity, a laser-like precision, a light green/straw color, a steely, full-bodied mouthfeel, and plenty of orange blossom, lemon oil, creme brulee, and honeysuckle notes. This powerhouse should drink well for a decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A rich, creamy style, with tiers of spicy fig, melon, hazelnut and nutmeg all folding together in a tightly focused core of flavors. Full-bodied and bold, without being heavy, ending with delicacy and finesse.

vanilla, roasted caramel, crem brulee on the nose. Very aromatic & full bodied. I wasn't picking up a lot of 'fruit' notes, mostly notes of oak influence. I didn't taste the citrus fruit that people say are typical of this wine. But, paradoxically, it did not taste over-oaked, but well balanced and full of flavor, which told me that there was big fruit in there. Impressive wine- more fruit/minerality would have given this a very high score from me.
