2017 Forman Chardonnay, Napa Valley, California (750ml)
As a young, novice winemaker in 1974, Ric Forman is the guy that put the original Sterling Vineyards on the map. He is still one of the best winemakers in Napa Valley.
He has also never allowed trends or winemaking fashion to derail his convictions about how great wine is made. Forman Chardonnay and Cabernet emphasize elegance and balance, without in any way sacrificing intensity. They are built for the cellar, and reward patience.
