for the second year in a row, we received an overnight delivery of four huge lobsters from Maine on Thursday. We had a delicious lobster feast, with steamed lobsters with a ginger vinegar dipping sauce and lemon clarified butter, steamed corn fresh from the day before's farmer's market, and roasted red pepper and tomato soup (from Trader Joe's). It's really such a special treat to have fresh lobsters from Maine, there's nothing like the taste of the sweet succulent meaty lobsters! We paired it with a lovely 2009 Curran Grenache Blanc, one of the several bottles of Grenache Blanc that I bought from the Curran case sale. Curran's Grenache Blanc was the wine that made me fall in love with Curran the first time I tasted it at the Solvang tasting room; it's very drinkable, fresh and well-balanced with just enough interest and complexity. The 2009 vintage was no exception.
