My mom brought over a bottle of wine for a Christmas brunch, and said she thought it was probably pretty good. 1995 Opus One. I tried to give it back four times, and she insisted that we enjoy it.
Six of us--five drinkers, with the other couples pretty expert with wine--will be eating and drinking next Saturday. I'm cooking. The Opus will only go so far, of course. I was leaning toward short ribs, as they can't be overcooked and are stress free at the last minute. Other suggestions, as to main course, other courses and other wines.
