Red Car 'Ritchie Vineyard' Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013
"Few new world Chardonnay sites rival the prestige of the famed Ritchie Vineyard. These true old Wente clone vines are among the oldest Chardonnay growing in all of Sonoma County and after four years of working with this magnificent site, we now fully understand how to bring the Red Car voice to these celebrated old vines. In 2013, we truly harnessed the potential of the vineyard by creating a California Chardonnay with perfume, texture, minerality, and nuance. The mouthfeel and body of this wine is the most opulent out of all of our single-vineyard Chardonnays and has received high accolades throughout the years from wine critics and Red Car fans alike. This wine can certainly be enjoyed at a young bottle age but the rewards for cellaring the 2013 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay are significant."
