Memorial weekend dinner with friends……

The evening weather in Sarasota remains unusually lovely so we were able to entertain on the deck and dine under the stars and the tree-hanging chandelier to celebrate the long weekend.  John opened a bottle of  2007 The Prince in His Caves – Farina Vineyard from Scholium ProjectThis winemaker is quite unusual.  You might enjoy reading this New York Times article about him – A Thinking Man’s Wines.

Thanks to our guests we also shared a bottle of Moet Chandon with the grilled shrimp and baked brie appetizers followed at dinner by an incredibly soft and delicious  (well, I thought so!)  magnum – 1991 Beringer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – Private Reserve.  The finale, again thanks to our guests, was a luscious lemon blueberry cake.
