95 points ""The 2009 Chardonnay Estate is an impeccable, classy wine layered with bright citrus, flowers and just a touch of sweetness from the oak. Crushed rocks and lime peel add complexity on the textured, long finish. In 2009 none of the blocks were designated for the Monte Bello bottling, all of the fruit went into the Estate. This is a stunningly pure wine from Ridge. I came back to the 2009 Estate after having tasted all of the reds and the wine showed beautifully. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019." 90 points from Wine Spectator Insider: "Well-oaked, with smoky, toasty notes, this is rich, intense and fullbodied. The tangerine, floral, white peach and nectarine flavors are enlivened by acidity. Drink now through 2016." (May 4, 2011) " Best 2011-2016
