    just for what it's worth, at ad hoc they recommend the chicken with champagne. and it really works well.

    I had some on hand, too, confound it.

    I still had to get home. Champagne could have complicated things.

    A very interesting wine. Quite inexpensive but very sophisticated in refined structure and balance. Chocolate and dark fruit on the nose with a lovely swirl on the tongue. Great back end, too. Lingered for quite some time. Unlike any Cabernet I've tasted, especially the big, jammy goodness of $$$ Napa Cabs. But this was excellent in a different style. Much more delicate. Drinking really well now. Tannins were right on.

    $30
    91/100
