Alex's big day approaches, and very fittingly this celebration was one of the very best, if not the best dinner we have ever had as a group. Some big names were on the table, but it was more the balance and variety of the wines poured, the fact that each one was drinking well, and that all were paired perfectly with the food that made this dinner so special. It helped that the chef really outdid himself this time - we had a one hour wait between dishes for delivery of a live crayfish that had supposedly been flown in from Vietnam on the day. Amazing stuff. Every dish was cooked to perfection, so I will break out from the usual mold by the listing the wines along with the food that it was served with. Thanks to everyone for making this such a special, special evening, for the conversation, the generous wines, and most of all for the friendship. A big congratulations to Alex. This was a night to remember.
Wines were all served blind as always.
