Dinner last night at a local restaurant on Marco Island called
Verdi's. Decent food but very weak wine list. We started with a
glass of 2007 Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay RRR for $10/glass. Some lemony
notes, no raging oaky flavors but a bit dilute a weak (C). I then
opted for a bottle of 2006 Foley Estates Santa Rita Hills Rancho Santa
Rosa Pinot Noir. Pale red in the glass with faint tea and floral
notes on the nose. Not much on the palate except for a bit of herb
and cola with a ton of oak. Yuck! "C-" Nothing charming or
distinctive about this wine and it tasted more like $6.00 than $45.
