RIDGE 2020 Santa Cruz Mountains Estate Chardonnay

Monte Bello Vineyard | 94 Points

Bold, with wonderful intensity, this white features a core of peach, pineapple and toasted spice notes that show overtones of salted butterscotch. The body is buttery and smooth, with a hint of white flowers and Honeycrisp apple on the finish, while a touch of beeswax and nutmeg lingers. Drink now through 2030. — MaryAnn Worobiec, Senior Editor
