Ridge Monte Bello Chardonnay 2013
The 2013 Chardonnay Monte Bello is exceptional. Rich, layered and creamy, the 2013 exudes depth. Readers will have to wait at least a few years before the 2013 hits its stride, but all the elements are in the right place. Yellow orchard fruit, mint, sweet spices and flowers are all fused together in an exceptional, racy Chardonnay loaded with class and personality. Today, the 2013 is a total knock-out. Drink: 2018-2028. Score - 95. (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, July 2016)

Ridge Vineyards, where the legendary Paul Draper has been winemaker since 1969, is perhaps California's most revered and respected wine estate. Monte Bello is the winery's range of super-premium wines that helped it gain its reputation, after the red placed 5th overall at Stephen Spurrier's famous Judgment of Paris in 1976. The Monte Bello Chardonnay is held in similar esteem, and is similarly unfiltered to express the inherent character of the wine. Expect bright acidity balancing the ripe fruit and oak.
