Earlier this summer, Vinilicious took a trip to Boothbay Harbor, ME. It seemed like the only wine we could find up there was the Sonoma-Cutrer 05 Sonoma Coast. I suppose someone said it went well with lobster.

We were glad we brought along a decent Macon-Villages.

There's actually a decent little wine and cigar shop in downtown Boothbay. Yes, most of the restaurants on the midland coast of Maine have very short seasons so the wine list is very straightforward.

Lenn, are there any California wine followers who have composed a list of West Coast chardonnay producers that avoid the ill trends which you've mentioned (and I agree with)? I have yet to have a great California chardonnay, but I'm optimistic that someone out there must be doing making them differently.

Hey Lenn-

I wonder if the results would be different if you had tasted the wines blindly. If you say you have a particular (sometimes judgemental) dislike of California Chards, maybe you should have tasted them without any preconceived notions? I actually tend to agree with you as I'm not as big fan of California Chards but it would be an interesting experiment to really see if you'd trip yourself up!


You may be right...and if I had had time to put these in with a few non-Cali chards I definitely would have done that. I usually do do my tastings blind, but didn't think it would make much sense since I was only tasting three that I knew were from CA from the same producer.

the music you listen to all influence the way you think and feel about yourself and the world around you.

How differences between men and women might be used for our mu-tual benefit in everything from our relation with one another to a better undrestanding of how our brains work.
