|The simple label caught my attention - this was our first purchase of Pacific Grove Chardonnay|

Day 104 - Pacific Grove Chardonnay
I asked my partner David what he thought of this wine as we were drinking it with dinner. His reply, “It’s Chardonnay, but it’s not poopy”. Eloquent, no? And quite accurate I think.
It is a cheap, simple wine (with a simple label). The bottle recommends serving it with “herb crusted fish, roasted chicken, or light pasta dishes”, and I would agree that it would complement those well (and I thank Trader Joe’s for not listing pretentious dishes to pair it with that only rich foo-foo people cook! For example, I went to a neighborhood wine bar tasting tonight, and the man leading it recommended pairing one of the wines with a RACK OF LAMB. Yeah – cuz I cook rack of lamb, like, every Tuesday, so I better stock up on this one…)
So yeah, this is a Chardonnay. It is $5.99. It has a tropical fruit taste. Drink it on a summer evening with a roasted chicken you bought at a grocery store already cooked (not at Trader Joe’s, cuz they don’t do those…). Drink it on your porch. Enjoy.
Price - $5.99
