Wine Tasting Party

Life is good when we make time to be with friends. This weekend we hosted a casual wine tasting party for a small group of friends. I love wine, but don't know a lot about it. I can tell good from terrible, but that doesn't make me a connoisseur. Since I learn best through the immersion method, throwing a wine tasting party is the best way to get friendly with more labels and add to my short list of reliable wines.

My friend, Becky is a wonderful cook as well as an expert on pairings. I provided my home and she provided all the prepared foods and organized the pairings. Below is a pic of our group.  The photo  is missing our neighbor, he is taking the photo. 

Our neighbor was given a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Russian government, for the work he did for the United States government. It is the same wine that the Queen of England & Steven Segal orders by the cases.  It was a 2007 vintage.  The 2006 vintage sold for $3200 a bottle. I would be curious what this sold for. 

I am not much of a red wine drinker, but I must admit it was quite a good wine. I guess this is what good wine taste like. And it was amazing sampling the food with the wine and how the flavor truly complimented each other.  Below is a copy of our menu.


It was a great evening with good wine, conversation and friendship.

Thank you my friend for hosting this fun party. I learned a few things about wine that evening but my favorite part was the fun and laughter among friends. You are truly a beautiful hostess!
