Although not as impressive a wine as the chardonnay, it's still
worth a ponder. I finally noticed there's no vintage on the label,
which says to me that the wine's a cuvee or blend. Hey, they're
taking what they have and making the best of it, and in my opinion
they're doing a great job.
My daughter's friend's dad laid some venison medallions on me
from a hunt last fall. She doesn't like Bambi, so I grilled a
chicken-apple sausage for her. The venison marinated in soy,
rice vinegar, garlic, onions, ShaoXing wine, and sweet chile
sauce. Super lean and tender. The Annandale cab went nicely
with the grilled medallions of New Jersey roadside attractions.
