What kind of creature has its brain in its throat, its nervous system in its stomach, kidneys located in its head, and teeth in its stomach?

Rich, decadent, and exciting to the palate, the sumptuousness of Maine lobster invites pairings of Napa and Sonoma Valley’s best wines. This season, make sure to indulge in the ultimate lobster experience that is the result of skilled chefs and talented winemakers for a lobster-lover’s delight.
