Our sweet friends, Roger and Jan, opened their home for our Connoisseurs group this past weekend so we could sample Chardonnays. As always with this group, we had a wonderful evening!
Jan and Roger set out quite the spread. I love party food! Everything was just delicious.
Here's just a small sampling of the great food...
And the great people...
We set up to start the sampling.
We had ten Chardonnays to sample - both unoaked and "oaked".
And the winners were...
#1 - Cakebread Cellars 2010
#2 - Kim Crawford Unoaked 2006
#3 - Simi 2009
Our hosts were the big winners so they presented the second and third place winners with gifts.
I don't usually drink white wines but was surprised with the Chardonnays.
There were 3 or 4 from this group that I liked - especially #1 above.
It was really great to get together and try some new wines with a great group of people.
