With flounder poached in a white/caper sauce, the 2012 Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc. I don’t drink much South African CB, but enjoyed this. On the simple side, but nice lemony citrus fruit with a wooly Chenin note. Worth it's $12 tag, B/B-
Spring seems to be here, with the added bonus of DST abd I grilled some peppers and some herb rubbed pork chops while Betsy prepared potatoes, broccoli, and salad. Wine was the 2011 Vissoux “Cuvee Traditionelle” Beaujolais. Fairly big and tannic for a straight Beaujolais, but while tight to start it opens up into a lovely glass of Gamay. Cherries and raspberries, spice, a little smokey edge. Full, zesty acids, good length. I think I need more of this! B++

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a
party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no promises of
objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
