Tasting Notes

While this Chardonnay definitely has plenty of rich California style, it shows truly impeccable balance along with supple-ness from lees aging. Expect apple and vanilla bean oak notes on the nose and palate.

Staff Pick Notes

When I am in the mood and need that Californian style big Chardonnay this is my favorite of them all and my go to wine in this category. Also I am already looking forward to my first Thanks giving meal and this wine will be a perfect companion to my roast turkey and mash potatoes. It has an amazing nose of creamy vanilla pod and florals. The butter and cream are perfectly balanced with a lively acidity. Also beautiful orange and tangerine citrus notes are present in a subtle abundance. The palate finishes beautifully smoothly with a hint of sweet oak. Ridge really have produced an impeccable classy wine which you need to try to appreciate. I personally can't wait for my next glass. Cheers Stephen W.
