On Sunday night Doodle and I attended a wine dinner that benefited one of the local charities in the area. The interesting part of the dinner was the lack of menu until you arrived. The dinner encompassed 6 wines and 5 courses and the chef does not believe in telling you before hand what you will be eating. Luckily the only one course of the menu had something that I would not eat... Doodle got extra lamb. The wines overall were good, we especially liked the Robert Hall Rhone de Robles and the Robert Hall Cabernet Sauvignon. We will be looking for a place that sells them.
The most exciting part of the evening was the raffle giveaways, would you believe we actually won a bottle of wine; 2004, Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon. The chef recommended we grill steaks to have with the bottle, so this weekend that is what we are going to do. I will let you know if the wine is as impressive as it was made out to be.
