Maybe you can sign up Baydog to do regular wine reviews here.This is the next one I want to hear about.
And a perfect gift for all those Laser sailors aged 55-64 in your life.
Splendid aromas of apples, pears and hints of tropical fruit are gracefully layered with a touch of French oak. The brilliant acidity serves to grace the wine with elegance, while the ripe fruit supplies a full mid-palate richness.Enjoy paired with Calamari and house-made Aioli or any shellfish 'especially' lobster in drawn butter, linguini with fresh clam sauce or garlic shrimp. Grilled or baked fish or scallops pair well as do dishes like chicken piccata or fettucini Alfredo.
As it happens, Grandmaster would also be a fitting reference to "a big red-headed kid that first walked though the back kitchen door and started peeling shallots."As many of us know, shallots would have languished in relative obscurity and would probably remain there today had they not been peeled to perfection by an enterprising and dedicated San Francisco restaurateur and then brought to the world's attention by a passionate San Francisco writer.... I mean New Jersey. Cheers Baydog!
