Staff Pick Notes

Go ahead, you know you want to! Give in to that urge to have a full blown, voluptuous, buttery Chardonnay! It's okay, I won't tell. In fact I'll join you for a glass. Yes, of course, I love minerality. Yes, I get into a good, funky, barnyardy red from the Loire. Yes, of course acidity is my best friend. BUT, there are those times when I just crave a good ol' hedonistic, meal in a glass, California Oaked Chardonnay. When I do, this is one of my go to's! It's just plain great and super balanced for what it is. So go ahead, say no to Chardonnay shaming and give into the dark side. I promise you won't be alone. For an extra treat, pair it with a hickory smoked corn and butter poached lobster risotto!
