Green-gold.  Leesy aromas of pear skin, baking spices, orange pith and brown butter, with a suggestion of white flowers.  Big, rich and sappy, but with a firm spine of acidity adding focus to the vivid orchard fruit and candied citrus flavors.  Picks up weight with air, finishing with superb length and lingering notes of smoke, bitter citrus and minerals.  This is still pretty young.  Two-thirds of this fruit, which is all Wente clones according to Andy Smith, came from the Ritchie vineyard.

While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
