The combination of the Cab and the silky lusciousness of the Bordelaise created from the homemade Demi Glace was a terrific success. More than a terrific success, but words fail me. Hard to believe, huh?
I dunno. Something about "Hug" and "Deer" just seemed to fit. But I digress.

So. Where Ya Been?

I've spent the last several weeks creating a video, music, and photo montage in tribute to DeeDee, and that's been demanding the lion's share of my "spare" time.
What was for dessert? A few Bat Nuts, of course.
I'm quite the advocate (Wine Advocate ... get it?) of cooler temperatures for red wines than what we're used to. We Americans tend to think that "room temperature" equals "warm." Kind of how many Americans tend to think that "Chihuahua" equals "cute."
So along I come with MirePoix Vegas, another one. Am I out of my mind? Probably. No new news there. Not that it ever mattered anyway.
I'm a Paso Robles Zinfandel fan, and I grabbed some popcorn as I prepared gleefully for the carnage. Paso Zins were going to kick some serious Napa butt, right? But as I read through the article - with horror, I might add - that was not to be. Not because Paso Zins were bad. They just weren't invited to the party.
MirePoix Vegas is a blog about food. Whether I'm talking about an ethereal meal of caviar and truffles (ha! like that ever happens!), a really great restaurant experience, a new recipe, a new Food Network program, or just sharing how well organic beef hot dogs pair with a five dollar bottle of red (pretty damn good, by the way), it's going to be about all aspects of the food experience.
Having a "winery" in the truest sense of the word in Nevada is illegal if the county has more than 100,000 people. Just like a brothel. See the connection? Well - except for possibly the good-feeling part - that's pretty much where the similarity ends.
Let's face it. We will often open up two bottles of wine when we're cooking with wine. The one we actually cook with and the one we drink. Both good. But the one we're drinking is always better. Isn't that true?
