Tuesday Tasting: Wildfire Restaurant White Wine Flight

Last night we ate for the first time at the Lettuce Entertain You restaurant Wildfire. To start, I ordered the Wildfire Wine Flight White Varietals. It's a nice selection of 4 good wines, with truthful tasting notes offered:

"CAPOSALDO PINOT GRIGIO - White fruit and apple aromas, flavors of almond and melon.

KIM CRAWFORD SAUVIGNON BLANC - Aromas of tropical fruit, bright citrus flavors.

CLOS DU BOIS CHARDONNAY - Citrus and tropical fruit aromas, flavors of pear and green apple.

KENDALL-JACKSON RIESLING - Floral and citrus aromas, hints of pear and peach flavors."

The Kim Crawford was easily my favorite, both aromas and flavors bursting out of the glass. The Riesling was also really good, on the sweet side. The wines were drunk with a plate of penne, wood-roasted vegetables, olive oil, and goat cheese - each glass complemented the meal and were tasty on their own as well.
