Yesterday my husband turned 63. We usually do a celebration meal on our birthdays. But, he was out playing radio (at a club meeting).
So, tonight we did the birthday meal.
Steak from Clark’s farm. Cauliflower from my CSA. Arugula from Love Dove Farm. And, cheese from Breezy Willow.
Served with a killer local wine.
RdV 2010 Lost Mountain. Close your eyes and you believe you went to Bordeaux. Big, yet balanced. Fruity, but not that California over the top style. Restrained, yet absolutely yummy.
Not something I say everyday about wine.
I have to admit, the wine was better than the dinner. The steak should have been pounded and marinated more. The cauliflower was a smidge too dry.
The salad did rock, though.
In a while, tonight, we will have a simple dessert. A glass of Late Harvest Vidal, and a few pieces of coconut chocolate.
Well, at least my dinners are a fraction of the cost of a luxury meal at a restaurant.
First vintage notwithstanding, the 2010 is my favorite Lost Mtn. Looks like you both enjoyed. Happy Birthday cheers!
Now that’s what I call great! Give her a big birthday hug for me!
