Tonight we had a family dinner with Susan and Jerry (Jason’s mom and stepdad). We had homemade ravioli, halibut, broccoli and a wonderful bottle of 2005 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. This wine is a real treat! This is the very same wine that was served to President-Elect Obama and 200 guests at the recent 2009 Inaugural Luncheon. I figure that Mr. Obama had a lot on his mind during that luncheon, but I sure hope he was able to take a few moments to enjoy the color (bright deep red), nose (raspberry, savory spices and earthy scents) and taste (black cherry, black raspberry and mocha) of this shining example of a California Pinot Noir. Hail to the chief!
