September's Gathering of the Flock

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Our monthly wino group met today and the theme was Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. The hosts made a great beef brisket. Most and tender with an excellent orange based gravy.

Since this was the same day as the Stolpman tasting in Los Angeles we arrived about 45 minutes late. I had dropped off my food the day before so I would not have to mess with it.

I brought a 2005 Meeker Cabernet Franc from Sonoma. There was a good assortment of wines and some that were really quite good.

Next month Oktoberfest.

Fun idea for a tasting Mary, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc--as they are Mom and Dad of Cabernet Sauvignon! And good for you dedicating yourself to the noble pursuit of divine combinations of food & wine. I was certainly bitten by the same bug.
