The 2009 Pinot Noir Ritchie Vineyard wraps around the palate with layers of deep black cherries, cola, spices and French oak. This is a big Ritchie endowed with gorgeous textural depth and a refined, sweeping finish. The influence of the Calera clone is felt in the wine’s weight and density. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019.
Rich and expansive, with layers of black licorice, dried berry, sage and smoke flavors. Slow to unfold, but reveals a fresh-turned earth aftertaste as it does. Best from 2013 through 2023. 353 cases made.
