Today’s Food and Wine Review

Spring has sprung and not a day too soon. The winter here has been sucky to say the least. We had the coldest driest January on record, then the wettest February and March on record. I am so ready for warmer and drier weather. In honor of spring, I fired up the grill and grilled some chicken breasts. Nothing exotic, Lemon Pepper Chicken with roasted green beans and potatoes. For the wine, I opened a bottle of Benziger, Sauvignon Blanc, vintage 2014.

The wine, a California North Coast Sauvignon Blanc was very light, almost clear in the glass and had a dry mineral aroma in the glass. The wine was very dry that tasted like lemons and grapefruit, with a crisp mineral finish. I served it chilled and the light crisp wine went along well with the lemon pepper chicken breasts.

This is definitely a wine that I will buy again.
