Mt Boucherie or Hester Creek

Tonight is pesto coated boneless chicken thighs roasted with the skin on over white cannelli beans.  The beautiful juices from the chicken drip down from the chicken and flavour the pre cooked beans.  This is being served with tahini crusted sweet potato and garlic coated brussel sprouts that have been roasted as well.

The question!!

2007 Mt Boucherie Merlot or 2006 Hester Creek Reserve Merlot?  What would your choice be?


Because my dinner is still cooking, I found this photo from a food blog and they have a good recipe for a similar dinner that looks just as good.




LaStella or Desert Hills?

Beef tenderloin from Save On Meats, Pan seared with just salt and pepper, served over roasted brussel sprouts & leeks, and dijon crusted sweet potato fries.

2005 mirage from Desert HIlls or 2006 Allegretto Merlot from LaStella Winery?  What should it be, which would pair better?
