Goldschmidt Vineyard Merlot Dry Creek Valley Chelsea Goldschmidt 2008
Each Goldschmidt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon profiles a single vineyard, single varietal wine that showcases the optimum silhouettes of Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley and Napa.
My first and only experience with this wine was one for the books. I was alone, in Dallas for a business meeting and made a special effort to go to a gem of a restaurant in Deep Ellum called Local. I'd found it on a previous trip to Dallas and had been dying to go back ever since. I decided to splurge and do the chef's tasting menu. The 4th course was a seared hudson valley foie gras + house_made texas toast (phenomenal) and it was magically paired with this lovely wine. The combination was out of this world with layers of flavors that still haunt me to this day. Can't wait to have it again!
