This was a real crappy day. Rainy, cold and just yuck and to top it off I spent too much of my day off doing work. YUCK On days like these I tend to need a real comfort food kinda evening. One of my favorites growing up was sausage and rice. My Mom would make this really heavy meal, filling and comfortable and it would make me feel so much better. So tonight I made this meal and I am really happy to say that me daughter and wife also find it to be a comfort meal. On this night I paired it with Lloyd Chardonnay.
Rob Lloyd is as they say a wine “rock star”. He worked his way through the ranks, starting out in the tasting rooms and then after graduation at La Crema and Rombauer. He started his own consulting company and wine label “Lloyd”. His credits are Butter, JAM cellars and Lloyd cellars. He is a consultant on many wines too. Tonight I am enjoying the 2015 Chardonnay.
The 2015 Chardonnay is rich, creamy and buttery. Full bodied with lots of ripe Carneros fruit, notes of vanilla that soften it up. Hints of oak linger at the finish but not overpowering. Loads of texture, a beautiful example of what chardonnay could be.
Sausage and rice with Lloyd Chardonnay. A great combination.
