Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Dinner with friends

Old friends... Simon & Garfunckel... such dear friends, so many years of wine and food together. As usual, the food and wine were great, but being together, the conversation, the familiar habits, the acceptance, or should we say tolerance,or love of each other's quirks and eccentricities makes such an evening a pleasure. Of course, the wine wasn't bad either. The 2002 Wineglass Chardonnay could fool almost anyone, except my wife, Diane, of course, into thinking they were drinking French wine. What a pleasure - no "California" tropical fruit, buttery texture and bouquet. Crisp, tart and fresh - what a lively treat on a hot summer evening. Chablis or Macon, anyone? That and a nice Sancerre were complemented by Japanese Kazu Halibut, Seaweed Salad and Cucumber Salad. Light, refreshing, exquiste flavor pairings with exquisite friends.
