Wine Review: If you can afford this wine, you will not be disappointed. This premier wine from Torbreck is excellent. This deep purple wine opens with a pleasant and inviting bouquet. On the palate, this medium to full bodied wine is well balanced, concentrated, and has explosive flavors. For a wine with this level of intensity, it also has an elegant side to it which makes it a bit more food friendly than the 2003. The finish is dry and quite prolonged. This is a terrific wine the will enhance any special occasion. The trait of a truly great wine is the need for more of it. I couldn’t get enough. Enjoy – Ken

What is Chicken St. Timothy?
Large cubes of chicken breast that are dipped in egg wash and then drenched in flour. Then saute the chicken with sliced mushrooms in a stick of butter. Once the flour absorbs the butter, add plenty of Chardonnay, and diced scallions. Finish off the dish with heavy cream. Serve hot and enjoy! It’s delicious!
