2012 Miner Chardonnay Napa Valley, California

Just like the Johnny Cash song, this wine walks the line—not too buttery and not too austere, it struts its stuff, like a clean guitar riff from Carlos Santana on a ’63 Fender Stratocaster—pure and uninhibited.  And for food pairings? Find someone who can cook a chicken cordon bleu. It’s a serious “oh yeah!” experience.

Excellent | $35 | 13.9% ABV
