Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

2012 Clos du Bois North Coast Chardonnay, $9, 3rd of 12

For us a quintessential California chardonnay.  Ginny's college friend  Quinn used to call it "Closet boys".  I am not sure why but was funny.

Floral, heavily oaky, well balanced between acid and sweet.  Helps that 2012 vintage in northern California is fantastic.

A highly mass produced wine found everywhere and inexpensive, it is still delicious.

Paired with eggplant rollups with salsa verde and freekah burgers with bacon mustard whip from Cape May.  Delicious!

Sipped: 3/6 (very good)

Paired: 3+/6 (very good)

2012 Greg Norman Limestone Shiraz, $15

2011 Gerard Bertrand Minervois Syrah / Carignan, $16
