2012 Bokisch Cineyards Albariño Terra Alta Vineyard Lodi $16
And certainly the best all around white yet this year. Forget that its not even from Spain. Crisp, taut, refreshing, and absolutely brimming with sophisticated flavors. But what's most overt about this Albariño is the enormous roundness of its fruit - soaring and arching like the domed interior of the Pantheon. All of this is backed up by a silken thread of acidity that makes it just lovely. Outstanding, if perhaps difficult to find. And with an SRP of $16, irresistible. 411 cases made.
