(made from old Wente clone fruit drawn from three vineyards: 60% from Ritchie and 20% each from Lorenzo and Searby; 50% new oak, no battonage): Vivid gold. Powerful aromas of orchard and pit fruits, honey and lemon curd, with a spicy topnote. Dense, smooth and expansive, with impressive volume to its ripe pear and nectarine flavors and a bright note of bitter citrus pith. Ripe and pliant but also shows excellent energy and finishes with strong thrust and mineral cut.

The 2009 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard bursts onto the palate with superb intensity and richness. Ripe apricots, flowers, spices and butterscotch flow from this powerful, authoritative Chardonnay. The weight and richness of these old-vine parcels informs the dense, full-bodied finish. The Chloe is made from parcels in Ritchie, Searby and Lorenzo, with vineyards planted in the 1970s.

Starts with a moderately rich mix of tangerine, fig and pear notes, turning elegant and subtle on the finish. Drink now through 2017.
