Sorry this is so late, but I wanted to mention that we held our meeting at Scott and Amy’s house and it was delightful! With only a few days before Christmas, I think we all had finished most of the shopping and were ready for a nice relaxing night.
Being so close to Christmas, I felt it would be nice to have a wine that brought up memories of our trip to France, so we opened a 2006 Chateaux Leoville Poyferre, which is the chateaux that we visited while in Bordeaux with Will & Thea and Will’s family. It was such a beautiful place and we had such a wonderful tour and tasting there… I thought it would be nice to reminisce about how fortunate we have been this past year. With Amy’s usual delicious selection of cheese and fruit offerings, it was almost like being back in France.
But just like with the vacation, we eventually returned to the USA. Scott opened a bottle of Duckhorn Cabernet and brought us back to California. It was a very nice wine and so was the whole evening.
