My first experience with this wonderful Rose. What an excellent accompaniment to any dish on the menu at lunch! I completely recommend this wine. I ended up going with the Lobster guacamole which came with a fantastic lot of taro, sweet potato, and plantain chips. I am still dreaming of the light and crisp texture of those chips. We also had the ceviche, macadamia nut crab cakes and onion soup.
The stuffed Mahi Mahi was my main course entree. You cannot go wrong with this one. Masterfully prepared, stuffed with lobster and crab, served with a rice pilaf.
