Best White of 2014: Ridge Mikulaco Chardonnay, 2011


From the Cellar: We had six bottles from last year.  I drank it, reviewed it, and missed it sorely.  Then, this week, I found a hold out!  Spectacular.  This is where I insert the link to my review, which is not as over the top as I was on this “bin end” and, truthfully, a little glib.  Ridge, the vineyard I would like to marry, produced just a smattering of this fine wine.  A white which has the brilliant balance of “Burgundy light” with “California heavy” and manages fruit with oak with green with gold.  Very, very hard to say goodbye.

It’s that time of year when everyone creates their “best of the year” right?

 

Price: $25 back in the day.

 

Market Liquidity: Like meeting an old friend by accident.
