    May 18, 2019 - Served with chicken kiev, asparagus, and rice.
    Clear, almost sparkling, yellow/gold.
    At the bottle opening, the nose shows some citrus (lemon), minerality, with a hint of oak. Continued to develop with air as the evening wore on, some richness to complement the Kiev's butter made an appearance.
    Smooth but not flabby, nice acid for length and backbone.
    Has the wherewithal to grow. Right now would suggest decanting to let it breath.

    March 10, 2019 - Sadly seemed flawed (otherwise it’s just not good)

    March 8, 2019 - Opened at Anvil. Consistent with prior bottle. I don’t get all the complaints with the oak - though I agree there is a presence, I feel it is a deft touch and adds to the wine. No hurry here.

    February 24, 2019 - I like the Ridge wines in general, but their chardonnay's aren't quite my style. The nose here shows baked apple, ripe peach, caramel and oak spice. The palate is relatively well balanced, but lacks a little bit of acidity and freshness for me. While its good for a Cali chardonnay, still not really something I enjoy.
