Christmas Eve Dinner
And so it begins, the 4 nights of friends, food and wine! Christmas Eve was a great informal gathering, the food was fantastic, Renee's Crab Cakes with Remoulade Sauce, King Crab Legs, the obligatory Swinery Meat Sampler, and a little Paella, dessert was a Praline Cake, from the home of pecans, Georgia. As usual lots of wine opened, including a vertical of Merryvale Profile, 99-02, Cayuse Impulsivo and Camaspelo, 02 Hewitson Old Garden Mouvedre(corked) and some other miscellaneous reds, whites and bubbles, more of a tune up for the nights to come.
