Saturday night's dinner.
In all three cases, and regardless of the $$$... count me a tiny bit underwhelmed. The Gaja was certainly lovely but I've had as enjoyable wine for much less. I've had better from Shafer as well. Nonetheless, a decadent evening, great food and conversation. the second course involved a mushroom pan sauce that was
with the Shafer.
None needed any significant decanting, in fact we left the Gaja in the bottle, it opened quickly in the glass. The Ridge was probably the least interesting.Edited by Cary Grant - 8/1/11 at 8:47am
