Something old, Something new
Last night we had dinner over at my brother's house and he has a nice wine cellar. We first finished a Chateau neuf de Pape that he had opened the night before. It was good with the strong cheese we had as an appetizer. When that was gone he let me select what we would open next. My choice was Chateau St Jean's Cinq Cepage 2000. This wine was drinking beautifully, with mellow red fruit and surprisingly went very well with the Turkey breast and dressing we had for dinner. I had never tried this storied wine and was very impressed with it. It is not inexpensive, but a good special occasion wine.
