Vertical to horizontal

Yesterday we were invited to dinner to celebrate a good friend's selection to the judgeship in Sitka. Unhappy to see him move from the neighborhood, but delighted to see him make this move professionally. Steaks and a vertical tasting of Kathryn Kennedy cabernets, 1995 to 1999. A delicious pumpkin soup, perfectly done NY staks with a gorgonzola walnut butter, warm tabooli-like grains, and perfectly done green beans, followed by a sumptuous raspberry chocolate torte. There was Roederer champagne mixed in there somewhere and a 1971 sherry, and a delicious white wine that I didn't catch the name of, and amusing conversation, and a swell view, and then we had to go to bed.
