decisions decisions....

it is a pretty good sunday when one of the biggest decisions i have to make is deciding what wine to bring to a party. do i go with a couple of my cellar options from Ravenswood.....

or do i go with the bottles that JS bought while i was in paris.....


selfishly, this is really about what i feel like trying this evening. the folks attending the party are all pretty adventurous eaters and drinkers so i have no qualms about foisting my tastes on them. as i have been saying for years, my alcohol tolerance is that of a gnat....so when provided an opportunity to bring bottles of wine to a party, i take it a bit seriously. this means that i can actually try, like two wines, and not feel bad about opening up a bottle and having it sit there. given this crowd, i highly doubt that the wine will just "sit" but rather go trotting along into many a happy tummy.

UPDATE

just wanted to let you know that i decided to take the layer cake and the show cab to the party. both paired well with the tri-tip, couscous lentil salad, various cheeses, and pate. folks in particular seemed to enjoy the layer cake and the show cab's label definitely provoked some conversation.
