Host:  Larry
with wines of Sonoma

at

Melisse
Santa Monica, CA


Wine List & Menu

Theme:  Sonoma, Not Pomona, Not Yer Sister Ramona


Patriots:  Larry, Kay, Dave L., Gail, Brad, Cathy, Dan, Debby, A. David

My tasting rating (0-10):  9

Sorry Larry, but if it wasn't for all the problems
we had dealing with the venue, this could have
approached the lofty 10-ness rating.  A little more prior
planning would have put this wine tasting over the top.

Factoid:  Koala bears take three days to digest their food.
That's why they sleep so much.  Therefore, all Hawaiians
must be Koala bears.

Cathy:  Larry, you have served me two perfect wines;
this '94 Kistler Chardonnay and the 1997 Screaming Eagle.

Larry:  I brought an extra bottle of Champagne
just for Gail and Cathy.  That should keep them quiet.

Not bad for the first time out
of the chute, Larry!  But next time...
