Good Morning Gentle Readers,
In some sense it comes as a surprise that a $35.00 Ridge Chardonnay captured the number two slot (excuse the blasphemy, I know, Chard IS white). OTOH, some-time contributor the Kosmik Kid once furnished TWC with a Ridge Zinfandel that was pretty much the cat's pajamas. So, in that sense, Ridge Vineyards is known for putting on the ritz now and again.
The other surprise is that eight of the Top Ten were under $80.00 US. Certainly I would agree that on its face eighty bucks for 28 ounces of pure pleasure is a bit absurd.....BUT, it's cheaper than good dope. I think. As points of reference go, one would expect that any wine rated 95 plus (that's stratosphere, boys) would command a premium price.
Whole thing right here.
