Thursday on the patio at the Keg … Ahhh summer. Lisa our waitress was going through our options for what she thought would be good choices to go with our lobster. The first recommendation from her was this wine. After some deliberation we decided to try her recommendation. I was impressed with her knowledge of wine. People are getting into wine at a younger and younger age (or I am getting older, one or the other). Our favorite bar manager Anna stopped by, always a treat. Back to the wine … The wine is pale in color with a mild nose and typical Chard bouquet so I am already envisioning the wine. And this one did not disappoint. It is slightly sweet, slightly buttery (not too over the top), slightly creamy with some lovely fruit and a medium finish. A right down the middle of the road California style Chard! The wine paired pretty well with the lobster I must say. All in all I would say this is an 88-89.
