3 blind moose chardonnay

My mom likes her Chardonnay so my dad bought her a bottle of 3 blind moose chardonnay (California 2007).

I managed to steal a small sip tonight and from what I tried I thought it was pretty good. It tasted slightly of citrus, butter and oak like a traditional chardonnay.

My dad's not sure, but he thinks he paid less than $10. Since he's not normally into spending a lot of money on alcohol I'm pretty sure it was. Plus, in looking for the 3 blind moose website, I discovered a post about their Cabernet on budgetvino.com -- another blog about wines under $10.

Traveling the Bohemian Highway

During a collaborative game of Scrabble on Christmas afternoon my mom and I decided to follow the directions on the back of the Bohemian Highway California Chardonnay 2007 "Uncork, unwind and let the journey begin."

Actually, we didn't go anywhere, but we did unwind to the slightly sweet flavor of the chard as we tried to think of wine related words to place on the board. I managed to get vino.

At $10 for 1.5 liters it's not a bad investment.
