@markgm in this Lab Rat Report, takes a bottle for a ride to a Thai dinner I said if this is $13 a bottle I’d pick up a case, $13.33 is close enough! It’s a fantastic wine.
@irenegade an old W00ter joins us for a first time Lab Rat Report Out of the fridge, light in color, very little on the nose. first sip impression- a bit tight, some nuances of oak with a little citrus. Letting it sit a bit as I prepared Lobster over Palmini. I’ll sip it again as I cook and it loses its chill. Same subdued tasting notes as the wine opened up while I prepped and cooked, with a longer mid-palate, and a bit of oily finish. A bit of alcohol coming through as well. A lighter summery barreled chard that would go over nicely in an outdoor setting. I would think a grilled chicken breast over a mesclun/spring mix salad with a light dressing would match nicely. Post dinner, a very pleasant sipper perfect for a summer sunset! Overall a nicely vintered summer chardonnay, pleasant and subdued, with a bit of tartness.
