STOLLER STOLLER Reserve Chardonnay 2014 

(Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, OR) $37

For my entire wine life, I’ve loved wines that had a good finish–wines that were long. Recently, I had an epiphany. Wines could be long in the middle of the sensation. That is, the spaces between one’s first impression, the middle of the wine, and the end—those spaces could themselves be long. I call this interstitial length. And I suspect only very, very good to great wines have it. This Stoller has it. It’s so languorous you want to roll around on the carpet. Its flavors are a tight weave of richness, like golden brocade. Plus a lovely lightbeam of acidity (courtesy of the Willamette Valley). I’m a tough critic of chardonnay, but this wine is impressive.
