A. David Chan's Wine
Tasting Rating: 9
This wine tasting was marked by a very eclectic selection of wines,
but the good company, excellent meal and fantastic presentation
by Miriam pushed this solid 8-rated wine tasting into the rare and
ethereal 9 range. My Beef Wellington went so well with the
'82 Dunn Howell Mtn. that I thought Liz Hurley and Pamela Anderson
had just sat down on both sides of me and asked me if I knew what
Ménage á Trois meant. At which time I looked up from my glass of
wine and mumbled, "Huh?"
