We had a farewell dinner for Tony and his girlfriend, Leena, before Tony and his best friend, George, left for a three-month trip to South America. Tony and George will backpack their way through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil. This Golden Path Merlot went well with our chicken dinner.
The four of us had this Golden Path Merlot 2003 with a chicken-and-rice dish. The wine was excellent: soft, dry, with rich berry fruit flavors. The celebration was bittersweet because we’ll all miss Tony, but it’s an adventure of a lifetime.
