And for the guys too. Yet you may recognize this title from somewhere. This is also meant to be uplifting, and more than just a wine review. That’s the perpetual intention of what I’ve been doing here, since the onset.
The location brings us back to BistroRX and half-priced wine night on Tuesdays. Yes, if you’re reading this on the day of posting, this bottle is from yesterday evening. Their wine list can be overwhelming, if you let it. And can lead to indecision which has happened to me in many a restaurant or shopping excursion.
However, I’m learning to relax and agonize less over the simplest of things. Going out to wine and dine is meant to be an enjoyable experience. Work should be left to work. And that shouldn’t be so daunting either if you think about it.
As opposed to going off the menu, in our previous visit, I spotted a name I liked and didn’t think twice. Well maybe not. I just can’t help myself. I’m always looking for signs, for names, and for some sort of inspiration. It’s not always outside myself. It can be from within. So this leads us to..
There’s so much to like about the 2014 Flygirl White from Airfield Estates. Here is a more elaborate synopsis if you’re so inclined.
The name drew me in. I’m almost positive I’ve seen this label before. Maybe it’s just the pretty girl. But everything about this label is an artistic joy. The vintage shown within the star is the kind of detail that’ll keep me coming back for more. And I haven’t even touched upon the wine yet.
I smelled some pear right away. Any tropical and/or citrus fruits that may be there would have me guessing. I’m happy to swing and miss. I’m also happy that it’s hot enough and sunny enough to be outside. The view of Patterson Park and the streets of Baltimore make this experience all the better.
My friend and I agreed the wine was smooth, easy to drink, and then even easier to drink. Pinot Gris and Viognier have never been favorite grapes of mine. Yet as a blend this is solid. Gewurztraminer will likely be revisited during the, umm, I won’t say it yet. No it’s not the best wine I’ve ever had, but as a whole package I would recommend this to anyone, girls along with guys. I think the beauty of the design works on so many approachable and endearing levels. And at around $15 retail price, I’m sold.
The flatbread pizza that we paired with our wine,tasted just as magnificent as it looks. Bistro’s food has never disappointed. You can read more about this pizza here.
