Last night for Valentines dinner I decided to go with......

Bubbles!

Paired very well with the Lobster Mac and Cheese. GRUET is a local NM Winery that specializes in of all things Champagne and they have been knocking it out of the park for years. This stuff is pretty widely available in the Southwest especially. A bargain at ~$14. I believe they are up over 6000 cases of this a year. Costco has it most of the time at least in these parts as well as Smith's (Kroger).

Started with an Oktoberfest, now drinking a "continuously" hopped bitter, much more to my liking. Still a bit too smooth, could use a rough hop edge or two.

I cracked a bottle of my 29 month-old WE LE Red Mountain Cab-Merlot. This is about the 5th bottle I've had, and I am not impressed. It is thin (remember, it was one of those LE's with no grape packs), but yet quite hot. Only tweaks were a bit of Tannin Rouge in primary; it came by its alcohol content (14.3%) honestly, that is, from the factory. Don't get me wrong, it is better than a sharp stick in the eye, but it is more like a Mezza Luna than a Red Mountain.

Did something we haven't done in a long time last night: Had dinner at Macaroni Grill. It was decent, though not great. We started with an order of calamari (which the kids ate most of) and my wife and I split a side salad. Had a nice Chateau St. Michelle Riesling with that. Then I had Chicken Marsala and chased it with La Crema Pinot.
