I pride myself on being very honest with my readers. When I think a wine is pretty good, you should be able to tell–I'm pretty fair, and when I'm amazed by a wine, I'm more than enthusiastic in my descriptions. Sometimes…stuff just falls flat, like tonight.
What I'm not recommending you try anytime soon: Murphy-Goode Pinot Grigio. It was just a bad white wine, with all those elemental tastes of something cheap. Figured it was a benign match for my Vietnamese Lemon Grass Chicken—not so. As a matter of fact, it was my second bust of a wine at Sacramento's Star Ginger this year.
Even though sweet wines aren't really my thing, the Middle Sister Moscato from the other night was a much better quality wine for the price—and actually would have paired well with dinner.
If you have a good Pinot Grigio rec, I'm all ears. xoxoSusan
