2018 Arista Winery Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard

Russian River Valley

$79.00 per Bottle


36 Bottles




"Powerfully structured, with an unctuous mix of white fruit and cooking spice flavors. Hints of roasted fennel midpalate lead to a sculpted finish that shows plenty of toasty accents. Drink now through 2027. 600 cases made." Kim Marcus, WineSpectator.com

"The 2018 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is a powerful, tightly wound wine, which is surprising for a year in which most wines are pretty open. Crushed rocks, mint, lemon confit and white pepper all open in the glass. The 2018 is translucent and yet t also packs a pretty huge punch of both fruit and structure. I would give it a few years in bottle to relax." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
