Freelon's house - Kent/Covington Area
Tasted Friday, July 19, 2013 by f22nickell with 274 views
This month was Freelon's turn to choose the theme - Old World Whites ABCR ("Anything But Chardonnay or Riesling"). Quite the difficult task for most of us this appears to be an area we collectively are lacking. Freelon also wanted to host this event at his house instead of the Amaroso room in Bellevue.
Talk about a gracious host! We arrived to two bottles of Champagne (I didn't catch the labels) with an antipasto plate of cheese, smoked salmon, and olives.
During the Old World White ABCR Tasting, Freelon served Scallops right off the grill.
After the Old World White ABCR Tasting, Freelon sent the group to raid his cellar for reds to go with big, beautiful steaks on the grill. We chose 3 bottles while Freelon and his wife served up the perfect steaks, salad, oven potatos, and french bread.
Finally, as the evening rolled to an end, Freelon brought out some chocolate and a Sauternes.

Freelon sent us down to his Cellar to pick out some reds to go with big, beautiful, juicy steaks on the grill.
Dessert wine with chocolates to wind down the night.
A wonderful evening Freelon!
We all thank you very much, gracious host!
