This is a very tasty chardonnay from Alexander Valley.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate and spicy.
Showing lemons, apples, pears, red chili pepper, spices, Cedar and vanilla.
Not too oaky which is nice for me.
A good quality wine.

Okay… Ridge 2018 Ridge Ponzo and 2019 Dirty and Rowdy Sonoma Valley Zin side-by-side ….. surprisingly unfair comparison…. Ridge is really nice… but the D&R turns the amp up to 12!!
