While I was on my trip Hef's dad opened my Rabbit Ridge Cab Sauv without me! And he only saved me one glass (a little strong on the tannins!) so I told him he had to replace it. Off to the liquer store!
We also purchased a 2008 La Puerta Cabernet Sauvignion. This had a better balance of tannins and fruit, and I have a personalized wine glass so there!
This is a Barefoot Moscato. I am becoming a fan of some white wines after orginally ruling them all out. I tried a Moscato on my trip and wanted to share one with Hef's Dad. The only one I could find in the freakin liquer store was a Barefoot wines! Hef's dad of course, disliked it but I though it was refreshing and crisp. Sometimes red wine is just too heavy and you want something cool to sip with your meal, Moscato to the rescue!
Yes, this is an eggplant, not a wine. Tonight I am brazingly going to attempt to make eggplant parmesan. Why brazingly? Because its an italian dish and Hef's dad is italian and my italian dishes never go over well. In addition, Hef's parents are coming over tonight and they just might taste it too. Fortunately my America's Test Kitchen cookbook has the recipe, so I should be ok. I'll tell you about it tomorrow.
