Preview: Lamb and Cauliflower Purée Paired with Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon

Lamb and Cauliflower Puree
This is just a short posting to whet your appetite.  Last night we launched back into the Decanting Napa Valley cookbook for our second pairing – lamb and cauliflower purée paired with Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon.  This pairing can be easily summed up in the sounds freely flowing around the table last night as we took our first bites and sips.  Oooh.  Aaaaaah.  Wow.  Oh my.  Mmmmmmm.  It seemed that no one was capable of delivering a hard consonant.

The tasting crowd included Chef Sue, Golf Buddy Steve, Photographer Buddy John, and Formerly of Austin Dawn.  Most surprised among the crowd was Formerly of Austin Dawn who does not like lamb, but in this case quickly fell in sync with the oooohs, aaaaahs, and mmmmmms.  But don’t take my word for it.  I ‘m quite sure that Formerly of Austin Dawn will be describing it in her own words.
Check back later this week for all the tasty details.
In vino veritas, buen provecho.


  1. Craig,
    Super lamb, incredible vino and great company! Thanks for treating me. Let's do it again in a few weeks.


  2. I plan to write about my lovely lamb experience on tomorrow's blog. For today, I had to ask my readers if Steve should pay my ticket, since he is the one that sent me out 66 after 3pm. Survey says...yes!

    Thanks for a great evening last night. I am totally going to get used to this!
