The 2011 Chardonnay Estate is strikingly beautiful. Creamy, layered and impeccably balanced, the 2011 Chardonnay Estate is one of the most gorgeous whites I have ever tasted from Ridge. Hints of lemon, white flowers and crushed rocks are layered into an oily finish supported by beams of minerality. This is a gorgeous wine by any measure... Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Big and bold. Not massive. Great craft, missing a bit of acidity IMHO. Decant

Such a balanced Chardonnay. Better with a couple years of age compared to when I first tried this in 2013.

Santa Cruz mountains block, which we have never been but we love the sun setting over the vineyard in Ridge Dry Creek patio on our lazy SF Sundays. If anything, the creaminess of it is a reminisce of that cherished time

Big, bold and spicy. Asian pear, steely notes, baking spices. The color is out of this world. Monte bello estate fruit, palate has weight but isn't heavy, it's crisp but not acidic...perfectly balanced.

Wow, fruit only in the background. But intensive butter flavors and vanilla! In the mouth liquid stone. What a Chardonnay!!

Oaked Chardonnay with terrific balance of fruit, acidity, and oak. Very smooth finish with no sourness.
