Steve Matthiason may not be a household name for collector's yet, but within the sommelier and winemaking world, he is the vine whisperer. You learn more taking an hour long seminar from Steve on grape growing than you'd learn visiting Napa every year for ten years. He's been there and done that. In 2006, he stepped up and grafted his home vineyard to a host of Italian varieties, and has since made a name with this Ribolla Gialla, California's greatest expression of Friuli's benchmark native variety. It's fermented whole cluster for two weeks and then aged in neutral barrel on its lees. It's released at a refreshingly lean 11.2% ABV intended for food friendly and generous consumption. Since my days at top restaurants pairing extensive tasting menus, Ribolla Gialla has been an unparalleled food wine for me, filling the gap in food pairing between white wines and red wines. Its particular texture and savory, hazelnut character has helped solve pairing conundrums for many of the more difficult pairings like egg-based dishes, asparagus, and artichokes. It's a perfect special occasion wine moving into the holidays as a wine that serves the nerd's curiosity and your family's ease-of-flavor access needs - BK
