    January 10, 2020 - Wow! This wine is singing at almost 10 years old! Golden color and a bouquet that explodes with tropical fruit. The wine is absolutely delicious with lots of pineapple and apple followed by caramel flavors with a finish that lasts for at least 30 seconds. Hard to believe that this wine is 10 years old and still kicking it!

    October 20, 2019 - Orange blossom and ginger nose. Decent mineral underpinning but as this loses the fruit of youth there's enough oak remains astringent that I suspect the 2009 Ritchie will never achieve excellence. Drink through 2021.

    October 20, 2019 - PnP and consumed over 3 hours. Golden yellow with slight haziness. Apple, pear and some tropical fruit with an oak backbone and good acidity. Long finish. Delicious, but for us was better a couple of years ago. Drink or hold short-term.

    July 12, 2019 - Drank side by side with the Larry Hyde and this was more new world. Still very nice, but a clear runner-up to the other. Trademark creamy lemon goodness with a decent oak presence.
