I arrived home today after a two day work meeting, complete with a hotel stay near the tracks with multiple middle-of-the-night trains and little sleep. While the overnight part of the trip was less than stellar, I had a fabulous dinner at a seafood restaurant with a reasonably priced, good Chardonnay.
I had the Blackened Red Snapper with a pico de gallo salsa topping, served with creamy fettucine. But instead of white sauce, it was made with a creamy red sauce with just a bit of spice. It was so yummy.
I ordered my wine before I decided what I wanted for dinner, so I paid no attention to pairing, but I ended up with a Sycamore Lane Chardonnay. I couldn’t find much online about this wine, but it hails from the Napa region of California, and is either unoaked or aged in neutral oak. It has a light crisp taste with tropical and citrus flavors. It cut through the mild spice of my red snapper dish nicely.
If only my night of sleep had been as good as my meal… But yay for the weekend!
