Father's Day Wine

Cuvaison, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1999 ($36) -- California; by the former winemaker John Thatcher. Dark fruit aromas and very smooth finish. Served with tonight's Father's Day dinner of grilled steaks from Wild Oats (it's OK, they're organic!) with grilled corn-on-the-cob. The snap peas got left in the 'fridge. Usually it's the bread in the oven that is overlooked during the rush of food prep! The wine was elegant with a good acid backbone and complemented the meal.

Another great Father's Day of golf (first tee time at Fox Run at 6:45am with no waiting on any shots), five hours of US Open Golf on the widescreen TV interspersed with cat naps, presents from kids, surrounded by friends and family, grilled steaks, and good red wine. I think Father's Day should be celebrated every Sunday! Let's hear from the women out there on this one!
