A few years back, my wife and I left a big New Year’s Eve party early. The music was great, the crowd was pleasant, but we realized we hardly knew anyone there and we were tired. We got home in time to open a bottle of Château d'Yquem , pour a couple of glasses and settle into our hot tub under a nearly full moon as the echoes of fireworks and cheers of “Happy New Year!” echoed on the hillsides of San Francisco.
Note: Back when I reviewed them, I set aside a few wines to taste when they are more mature. In this occasional series I report on wines from the cellar that I probably should have tried earlier, but thought them worth a shot anyway.
Two restaurants I encountered in Honolulu had sophisticated wine programs, but you might never know it from looking at their wine lists. One, which I wrote about last week, doesn’t even have a wine list.
If it seems as though I have been missing in action, blame it on Hawaii. I am on a long-planned vacation, got here late last week, and in the flurry of departure never wrote an “I’ll be away” blog.
Note: This is the first in an occasional series. Back when I reviewed them I set aside a few wines to taste when they are more mature. From time to time I'll report on wines from the cellar [that I hadn't gotten around to yet].
