Wine of the Week: Paul Newman’s Napa Chardonnay

I am on Cape Cod this week with my family in what has become a yearly retreat for the whole family. We come to the Cape, hang out on our favorite beaches, eat lobster, go to Provincetown, and go fishing.

As I mentioned in this last blog post, I have been fishing all my life with my father. I now fish with my niece and nephew as well. I’ve never caught anything that I have then eaten except some flounder when I was 22.

Instead, I’m having a grand tine eating lobster, my favorite meal in the whole world. Oddly enough, on the Cape I tend to bring wines from home but also buy wines at the package stores up here. One wine I bought was made by Paul Newman’s foundation or better, it was made for the foundation from grapes sourced in California.

I’m not sure if it is the location, the company or the good cause but this wine at $12.00 was a winner despite much oak and few tertiary aromas. I obviously had too much of it the night I posted this blog with all of those mistakes…Editing is key and I guess my head is on vacation.
