Clean and refined, pure, rich and elegant, this Chardonnay features a strong mineral, lime skin and green apple presence, gaining depth and dimension before fanning out nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2018.

The 2010 Chardonnay Estate is a beautiful, precise wine laced with citrus zest, crushed rocks and a hint of spice from the American oak. In 2010, the Chardonnay stands out for its energy and tension. It needs another year or two to settle down, but it is already striking in its beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2013andndash;2020.

Pale yellow. Candied citrus fruit and pear aromas are complicated by notes of vanilla and smoky minerals. Juicy and incisive, offering lively Meyer lemon and quince flavors that pick up a subtle touch of anise with air. The vanilla note comes back on the spicy, tenacious finish.

The 2010 Chardonnay Montebello Estate Vineyard wraps around the palate with layers of deep expressive fruit. It shows lovely depth in an understated style. There is a level of textural depth and creaminess that isn't found in the straight Estate bottling but the 2010 never strays from the classic restrained Ridge style. This is gorgeous. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. - Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.


Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine & Spirits: Scents of lemon, vanilla and salt air rush through this young chardonnay, a cool mountain wine with a clear impression of the California coast. It glistens with white cherry flavors, herbal scents of forest underbrush and a gentle, honeyed aftertaste. Already showing incipient complexity, this will gain depth and breadth over the next several years. (Aug 2012)
