Wine information
Ritchie Creek Vineyard is located at the top of Spring Mountain in the Napa Valley appellation’s premium Cabernet Sauvignon growing district, 2000m above sea level. Peter Minor bought this wonderful picturesque family estate in 1967, and produced only around 800 cases per year from vines planted in 1967. His son Andre now runs this estate with his wife Tina. This library wine from the family’s personal cellar is the last of its kind on the market, but still going fantastically strong. Plummy dark fruits and savoury tomato confit fill the nose. It’s an earthy, meaty palate that works in tandem with the fruit still on the palate. Get this while its here as there will be no more!

Robin says "I have known Ritchie Creek since the late 1999s. In 2006, I was able to finally met the lovely proprietor Pete and was enchanted by the property, which looked more like a forest cottage than a Napa winery. I loved it! I also loved the wines. Bordeaux-like but with a tinge of sweeter fruit, they embody such balance, depth and appeal. A grand wine."
