Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

This evening’s Sommelier Guild event - a celebration of summer whites and reds - will be at Goldfish, conveniently located at Perimeter Mall.  It will be the first event under the Guild’s new leadership, so it will be interesting to see how everything turns out.  I will be waiting with bated breath... and since sushi is one of the offerings at Goldfish, it may be baited breath as well.

Here’s the menu, for your delectation:

2008 Raventós i Blanc De Nit Cava Rosado

First Flight:
2007 Chasseloir Comte Leloup Muscadet Ceps Centenaires
2010 Pascal Bouchard Chablis Premier Cru Montmains

Based on my prior experience at this restaurant, the food should be quite nice.  The wines, as always, will have to speak for themselves.
