Back on this here intertubes thingie and bragging on my man!

So, Mr. Man decided to take me to the Hobbit for dinner tonight......drool drool!!! You must go and put yourself in the hands of the Sommelier, Greg Cole. Trust me. I fell in love with wine again tonight.

Dinner and pairings after champagne and hors d'Oeuvres:

Spiced monkfish with apple, smoked onion and tarragon citrus vinaigrette paired with
2008 Fleming-Jenkins "Victories" Rose, Central Coast, CA

Garlic roasted lam loin with sweet corn polenta cumin-orange grilled zuchini and wild mushroom jus
2007 Samsara Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara, CA

Intermission: Pineapple vanilla bean sorbet

Cote de Boeuf with charcoal roasted leeks with mashed potatoes, green beans, radishes, acorn squash
2001 Aribau Cuvee "Reserva" Rioja, Spain

Myer Lemon Cake with fresh raspberries and champagne sabayon
2004 Delas "La Pastourelle" Muscat de Beaumes-De-Venise, France


Greg was so very kind to give me the rest of the muscat for my birthday. I plan on making cakes and drinking it tomorrow for the actual day!

I don't blame you for not using your real name. Mine's been out there (and is also fairly common) so I didn't really care much. ;p

Also, happy birthday! :) Going off to add you on FB!
