2011 Ridge Vineyards Monte Bello Chardonnay, Santa Cruz Mountains

Creamy concentration and a stunning soft palate.
“Ridge's 2011 Chardonnay Monte Bello is laced with yellow stone fruits, honey, almonds, honeysuckle and butter. A surprisingly rich, dense wine, especially within the context of the year, the 2011 should age beautifully based on its pure depth. The oily, textured finish suggests some presence of botrytis although there is none. In this vintage, winemaker Eric Baugher chose to give Chardonnay a little more time on the lees.”
