Forchini Chard '10

by John Treder » Sat Dec 01, 2012 1:12 am

Mike Forchini, another retired engineer, makes some nice wine. I really like his Chard.
So I bought a crab today, made croutons, hacked up some anchovy, and had cracked crab and Caesar salad with Mike's '10 Chard. A very nice light Chard. Almost too light for the meal. A bit more buttery malo might have fit better.
I enjoyed it, though. Maybe I'm getting too picky these days.
Calif., Russian River Valley , Forchini, Estate grown Chardonnay, 2010 $14.99 13.5% alcohol Bought at the winery last February.
The vineyard where Mike has his Chard (and some other stuff) is across Old Redwood Hwy from the Foppiano farmhouse.
