JEB DUNNUCK 96 POINTS - "The 2018 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard Chloe is a more rounded, fleshy effort that still plays in the vibrant, more chiseled style favored by this estate. Beautiful crushed citrus, pineapple, Meyer lemon, and white flower notes all dominate the bouquet, and this beauty hits the palate with a rich yet racy style that carries loads of fruit and texture as well as bright acidity. I love it, and while it's great today, it promises to shine for 7-8 years and have a gradual evolution beyond that as well."

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "The 2018 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard is the last vintage of Ritchie Vineyard from Dumol, a vineyard designate they have made for 20 years. 'The old vines are no longer economic,' says Dumol winemaker Andy Smith, 'so there's a replanting scheme going on.' The Ritchie goes out with a bang—it's a gorgeous wine, offering youthfully shy hints of tangerine, hazelnuts, flint and honey-oat character. The palate is medium-bodied, silky, concentrated and expansive with dynamic acidity to lift the rich fruit, lingering in the mouth for a very long finish. It will benefit from another three to five years in bottle and should be very long lived."

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - "The 2018 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard is marked in this vintage by a real feeling of textural richness. Apricot, passionfruit, butter, spice and vanillin all add to the wine's generous, radiant feel. The Chloe is one of the most extroverted wines in this range."
