The Wine Advocate (August 2016): 90 Points. “Ridge’s 2014 Chardonnay (14.3% alcohol and 100% varietal) has a light straw color, an attractive nose of delicate pineapple and citrus as well as touches of fig and wood spice in the background. Medium-bodied, with good texture and richness, this is an excellent wine to drink over the next 4-5 years.” -Robert Parker

Vinous Media (July 2016): 93 Points. “The 2014 Chardonnay Estate opens with inviting aromatics. Bright, floral and nuanced, the 2014 offers striking complexity and energy. There is a hint of reduction, but that is not a negative. Readers who enjoy focused Chardonnays will find much to admire in the 2014. This is a gorgeous wine from Ridge. Lemon, white pepper and mint add the closing layers of nuance. In 2014, Ridge bottled less of their Monte Bello Chardonnay than the norm, which may be one of the reasons the Estate is so expressive.” -Antonio Galloni

Decanter Magazine: 95 Points. Notes from their three person panel:

Stephen Brook
“Reticent apricot nose, with considerable purity of fruit. Fresh attack – lean and sleek – with vibrant apricot and citrus fruit; taut and intense. A wine with pungency and structure, and an almost Burgundian persistence of flavour. Harmonious, textured and long.”

Andy Howard MW
“Good Weight on the palate with attractive notes of ripe stone fruit and fresh acidity. Very well-balanced oak, aromas of gunflint, and a long and complex finish. This will age well.”

Andrew
“Lovely gunsmoke character; very inviting. Rich and full bodied – dare I say a very masculine Chardonnay? Lots of stature and presence. Very woody at the moment, but an excellent example of full-bodied Chardonnay.”

Wine Spectator: 93 Points. – “Starts assertively oaky, with cedar and matchstick notes, but transitions into a more compelling elixir, offering a rich mix of pear, melon, honeydew and spice flavors as the oak recedes and lets the fruit come forth. Drink now. 3,275 cases made. – JL”
