I would be remiss if I did not send our condolences to Tommy and his family for his loss over the weekend.
We had a very quiet and intimate wine tasting at the Buzz last night – Herbs and Wine was the topic. Great topic and job, Cristi! Your choices of topics is what makes these Wine Dinners so very interesting. If you live in Boise, or the surrounding area and you missed this event, you can redeem yourself tonight as the program is repeated. The program starts at 6:30pm and costs $20.00 per person for a 5 Course dinner and at least 6 wines. Here is what we had and the wines to go with dinner. Cheers!
2012 Wente Chardonnay
13.5% alc.a wonderful chardonnay with this quiche. 
Herbed Zucchini Soup
2012 Monte Fresco

Spiced Grape Salad
2012 Zolo Bonardo

Saffron Tomato Rice
2012 Fernandez Gomez Rioja
14% alc. superb match. went very well with the broccoli. 
Lavender Cupcake with Honey Frosting
