Some nights call for a good wine to numb a long day. I always try to keep my (wine) glass at least half full, but had to shake my head when I was having problems getting it open to even fill it to that point! Really? I am just glad this made me laugh. While opting for a white on this beautiful evening, I (attempted) to open a bottle of Cakebread Chardonnay and the cork split. AHH! Give me my wine! No, it didn’t take long to fix the error, but still. At least good things come to those who wait. Now I am enjoying some yeasty, citrus-y, toasty, oaked California Chard (with a few cork sprinkles). I am not normally a big fan of oaked Chard, but there are some that hold a place in my heart.
