If at first…

If at first you don’t succeed, try , try, again.  When this comes to tasting wine you can never really lose out. 

As many of you know, Sara and I are expecting little bundle of joy very shortly.  Due to this, the house has been turned over a few times getting ready and things happen to go by the wayside.  Sadly, Sunday Salud and the review I did a few weeks ago have suffered the consequences of such actions.  So this evening I decided to try again.  Such a rough life is mine…

I really enjoyed this wine.  I have had the pinot noir and the cab from these guys and enjoyed them as well.  A nice buttery Chard that works great with pasta, smoked and grilled meats as well as a 95 degree summer day in the south.  Definitely recommend as a drinker, or a great gift for a dinner party.  After reviewing this wine and I quite glad that I lost the original review of a different wine.  Oh well.  Wish us luck as we begin a new chapter in our lives.
