Introduction

Several of the people coming to our big ZH dinner came in early to partake in some food and wine the night before. With the whites we had appetizers of assorted cheeses, olives, smoked salmon with goat cheese and more. For dinner with the reds we were treated to Barb's fabulous beef bourgigogne and celery root mashed potatos. Dessert wines were with the mango macadamia nut creation Barb arrived with. Yummy!

  • 1991 Müller-Catoir Haardter Herzog Riesling Eiswein 93 Points

    Germany, Pfalz

    AP #17-92. Much more expressive of a variety of aromas/flavors than a bottle about 6 weeks ago that was intense and delicious but all honey and lemons. Medium gold in the glass, this had beautiful Riesling fruit and a great streak of acidity. Very long on the finish. Nicely matched with the mango macadamia nut dessert. 50+13+13+8.5+8.5 = 93

Closing

Whether by part of my plan to make sure I didn't over do it Friday night, knowing what Saturday had in store for us, or if by accident, I missed several wines that were opened and I would have liked to try including a Pride Cab Franc, Chehalem Pinot Noir and Pax Syrah.
