Today is Mike Grgich's 97th birthday. He's one of the most famous winemakers in Napa Valley, though he retired a few years ago from winemaking at his winery, Grgich Hills Estate. Tonight's celebration in his honor will be cornish hen and butter-glazed carrots paired with his 2016 Chardonnay.
I have some of his cab, I'll have a look see. Thanks Mike.

I haven't drunk a lot of California Chardonnays because they're generally not my style, but this one is unquestionably the best I've ever had. Bright, vibrant and fruity. I'm enjoying it while the Cornish hen is cooking.

EDIT: I ordered three more bottles. Surprisingly, the winery had the lowest total price I found because they're charging only 1 cent for shipping.
