#MothDallas also known as Meddlesome Moth

Meddlesome Moth on Oak Lawn has to be about the coolest place to eat and their food is amazingly unique. Small plates to share, healthy foods-what more can you ask for! Beer! That's right-they are known for their beer selections and although I don't drink the stuff, I can respect those who do. 

Now their wine list isn't very long, but who cares-after eating their food and having a few glasses of wine-I'm good! Here's what we've had recently at the Moth!

The bottle on the left is a Eberle 2011 Viognier Mill Road Vineyard ($23) from Paso Robles. 90 points, very highly recommended, won lots of awards. 

The bottle in the middle is a 2011 Cordier Bourgogne Blanc Vieilles Vignes ($23) from France. He is one of the hottest winemakers in Burgundy. Check out the You Tube if you speak French. I don't! Deliciously well balanced, medium light yellow gold, full mouth, good fruit, gentle finish. 

The bottle on the right is a Melville 2010 Chardonnay Verna's Vineyard ($23). "Boasting a bright yellow gold hue, fresh aromas of pineapple rind, dried cilantro, sourdough, and lemon meringue spring from the glass. Other notes of almond skin, key lime, honeycomb, and fresh ricotta drift in the background. The palate is bright and vibrant while ending round and complete-winemaker's notes!"

Mid September, we all went down to the Moth for a late night dinner, and I had the following wines- 
2010 Valle las Nencias Malbec Reserve Mendoza ($15). 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.  "The 2010 Malbec Reserve has a floral nose with crushed violets infusing the creme de cassis fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins, fine acidity and an insistent grip on the minerally finish. Again, this is a thoughtfully crafted Malbec that is harmonious and complex."  


The last wine I had there that night ( and mind you I am not the only person drinking these wines) was a 2010 Windsor Sonoma Chardonnay ($25) from the Russian River Valley. 

Meddlesome Moth (such a fun name) is a cool, hip place. GO check it out for yourself for lunch, dinner, or whatever! You'll love it!
