Blue Mountain Chardonnay, 2011

If you drink a lot of wine you may get immune to palatable wines that aren’t top of the heap.  This is that sort of wine.  It’s absolutely totally OK but not write a wine blog about great.  No one at the table had any complaints, no one had any raves.

 

The BMC starts with a light, citrusy punch, transitions quickly to a typical and lovely oaky chardonnay, then lingers with a pleasant metallic butterscotch finish.

 

Not much to complain about at the price, though certainly no heavyweight.  With a basic frittata it worked wonders.

 

Price: $20.90 direct from the vineyard.

 

Market Liquidity: Likeable.
