2007 Patz and Hall (Possibly Napa Valley?) Chardonnay: Eh.
it wasn't our waitress' fault -- there was some sort of problem in the kitchen -- but we ended up waiting for about 35 minutes for our first course. as a result, the wine ended up warming up a bit. as for our appetizers, they were both worth the wait. greg had sweet breads (paired with a 2007 brazin old vine zinfandel that i'll talk about in an above post), and i had breaded goat cheese on top of cubed beets. this was fantastic and went wonderfully with the chardonnay. the peach flavors i identified in the wine made it trend toward sweet, and i was very impressed by the pairing with the beets and goat cheese. i think this is a better wine to pair with food than to drink on its own.
