Our dear friends, Sharon & Dave joined us for dinner Friday evening. They are two of the most interesting and delightful people I know, generous and kind souls with a wonderful take on the world around them. They make me think, reassess my assumptions and consider life from a different point of view, and that’s just one reason I love them.
Another reason is that Dave enjoys wine almost as much as I do. He and Sharon provided the beverages for the evening: Concannon Pinot Noir (California 2007) and Wolf Blass Yellow Label Cabernet Sauvignon (South Australia 2007). Dave did good.
The Conannon was round, fruity, and velvety-smooth. The Wolf Blass was juicy, oaky, and herbal. I have to admit that I preferred the Cabernet to the Pinot Noir, but both are excellent choices for dinner with friends.
If you’re in Texas, you can find both at Spec’s for around $13. Get some to share.
