If it is convenient, I am wondering if you might recommend a restaurant in the Solon area for my wife to host her cousins whom she is visiting. We do not get to Cleveland often but she would like to treat them to a fine and interesting dinner. Thanks in advance for your kind consideration, and certainly I understand if this is not convenient. Cheers!

I chose to grip-and-rip from the cellar, and to start tasting immediately. So I have some early behavior comments on the wine but, after 30 minutes of air and swirl, I believe we are tasting from the exact same bottle. :)) cheers!

And an amazing think happened at the tasting: Russell put his '09 Showket EE Proprietary Red up against '09 Dominus in a blind tasting, and it really held it's own! Anyhow, hoping to learn more about your wines and glad to know that you are a fellow NE Ohioan.
