First course: Smoked Salmon and crab with grapefruit coriander and melon salad, paired with Sauvignon Blanc. It was such an interesting mix of flavors with the melon, spicy grapefruit sauce and crab. The flavors danced on my tongue. I'm not a huge white wine fan, but I'll definitely be buying a bottle of this next time we go to the winery.
Second course: Moroccan style braised chicken with preserved lemon & green olives, paired with 2005 Merlot. Fall-off-the-bone tender.
Third Course: Portobello mushroom with duck, spinach, and smoked mozzarella. Paired with 2005 Syrah. I'm not a mushroom fan by any means, but I thought this was one of the tastiest courses. I actually ate a mushroom, and enjoyed it!
The best course aka dessert: Warm apple cake with vanilla whip cream. Need I say more?
aaaawe Mr. Knots and I enjoying our meal (btw - I think I like that new name for him here on my blog. What do you think?)
In honor of the upcoming Father's day holiday, here's a pic of my pops and I:
