Spring Evening

The calendar says it is still winter but the weather here says it is spring.  A beautiful evening last night to sit on the patio and fire up the grill.  With a week of heavy rain coming sitting outside and eating last night was like getting a flu shot for the coming misery. 

Dinner was a fresh trout on the grill with grilled asparagus and lemons.  Fresh rosemary and thyme were stuffed inside the trout for added flavor.  I love the taste of the juice from the grilled lemon when it was squeezed over both the trout and the asparagus.

The wine was a 2013 Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc from the Horse Heaven Vineyard from the Horse Heaven Hills a.v.a. in Washington state. 

Citrusy wine with grapefruit and lemon flavors, but wonderful herb and grassiness to go along with the fruit.  Nicely balanced, tart wine and fairly priced. It was a good match for the trout.

2013 Chateau Ste. Michelle Horse Heaven Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Horse Heaven Hills, Washington.  13% alcohol and $14.
