Life is good!

I had a T-bone steak for dinner last night with a bottle of Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage "La Chapelle" 1998. Life is good!!

The wine was excellent. Complex. Floral bouquet. Ripe red fruit and lots of spices on the palate. Very Meaty - or was it the steak? :) - A long smoky finish with notes of tobacco and pepper lingering for a long time in the mouth.

Here is the recipe for the steak (cooked by chef Nanci Bergamo):


2 cloves of garlic
4 tps. Dijon mustard
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. coarse salt
4 (1-lb) T-bone steaks
Red pepper strips (optional)
