2008 A to Z Oregon Chardonnay: Crisp, clean with some lemon

jan. 24, 2010: alright, chardonnay: i know i've said some things, some things i may regret. like those times when you were served blindly at weddings. or when people drank you easily, uncritically, at awards ceremonies. that's when i smirked: you're not meant to be buttery! or, if i want vanilla, i'll eat ice cream!

but you, unoaked 2008 a to z: you are what chardonnay should be ... crisp and clean with inklings of lemon. you stand there in your proud oregon bottle. and after years of searching, we're so glad to say: we like you. finally.

i paired this winetree purchase (recommended by ron) with a breaded chicken breast recipe that i baked in the oven with provolone and parmesan. i used chicken rub that we'd bought at the sahara mart and lots of dried oregano in the bread crumb recipe and then baked it for about 35 minutes at 325. i followed, more or less, this recipe: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/baked-garlic-parmesan-chicken/Detail.aspx  i also prepared pesto from scratch to combine with rigatoni.
