The Chardonnay is casual and refreshing, combining the best of California chardonnay (slight buttery smoothness) with the best of Pinot Gris (light and bubbly, crisp finish). A perfect warm afternoon white wine.
The best Ridge zinfandel of the afternoon. Great range of tastes and flavors, captivating the entire palate. Slightly formal, asking for the real silver and white linens, but at an outdoor table.
