2014 White Rocks! by Cornerstone: This wine is a blend crafted of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Orange Muscat. It poured a soft yellow with green highlights into the glass. This wine is like a basket of fresh fruit delivered to your door: tropical fruit, stone fruit, citrus and melon with white floral notes and honeysuckle exploding out of the glass and onto the palate. It offered a creamy and smooth texture that was quite lively and delicious, adding a touch of marzipan to the bounty of fruits and flowers. It had a round acidity that was mouth-coasting with a lingering, dry finish. Truly a perfect food wine to make your weeknights rock! SRP $15.00
In this chili, these two secrete weapons join together to turn juicy and moist boneless, skinless chicken thighs into a somewhat spicy and couldn't-be-easier chili. I often make chili with ground chicken or turkey, which we all love, but it was nice to change it up with real cubes of chicken. This one is a definite weeknight keeper.
