Tell Me What To Drink

Believe it or not that clip was only 4:47. Seemed a whole lot longer, didn't it? That's why I hated that fucking movie.

But I digress.

This is your chance to play me like a meat puppet and actually control what I put in my mouth.

Just stop right there you sick fucks. I'm talking about picking a wine to accompany my dinner.

Dinner tonight will consist of the following:

A nicely marbled rib eye, grilled to medium rare perfection.

Herb roasted red potatoes.

Sliced and seasoned, vine-ripened tomatoes.

Warm and buttery King's Hawaiian bread rolls.

Uncharacteristically, I am considering cracking open a bottle of wine to go with.

I'm not making a special trip out, so it has to be one of the six wines I have in stock. You pick.

Your choices are:

A 2003 Blackstone Winery Merlot

A 2004 Jekel Vinyards Montery Riesling

A 2004 Sterling "Vintner's Collection" Cabernet Sauvignon

A 2004 Tenuta Ca' Vescovo Pinot Grigio "Friuli"

A 2004 Frances Coppola "Diamond Collection" Sauvignon Blanc

A 2004 Brampton Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa

Let the pretentious and condescending snobbery begin!

steak- something red. I prefer a shiraz, but I didn't see that on the menu.

Wine? Whine? Jezzis.

Wine is for wimmens and can be had by men folk only when eating chicken.

Beer is for BEEF... why do think there is only one letter difference? A good IPA or stout goes excellent with meat and taters.

Oh well, hope you enjoyed the ribeye. ;-)

WTF is Pig Vomit banging on about?????? JEEEZUS! Is that supposed to be sexual innuendo or does he really care about weak grapes that much?

Hope the meal was fab.

I hope you went with the merlot...Red with beef, has to be dry.

Xavier Onassis said...

poodles - yep, had to be the merlot. no brainer, really. just wanted to see what others felt since most of those wines were gifts and didn't know what to expect from them.

Nuke said...

Good choice. Merlot is pretty good with red meat. Don't choose it for sipping in the evening tho, as it really needs the contrast of the beef.

It was really the only choice on there I have had experience with, but a lot of the others have been recommended.

I have a copy of that movie, and I'm so giving it to you at the next blogger meetup... since you love it so much and all :)

I drink Black Box wine, usually a cab. Don't knock it till you've tried it.

Sounds like you had a good meal. Just picked my first red tomato. Yum.
