Filet Mignon w/ Pinot Noir Sauce

Sounds like it would be good. But then again, so do book titles until you start actually reading them!  Though, according to Scott Hargrove’s profile, he is a private chef, caterer, and food consultant. Check out the video for his  recipe “Filet Mignon w/ Pinot Noir Sauce” and see what you think.

Blind Tasting w/ Gary Vaynerchuk

Wine is not for snobby, nose in the air, straight-laced,  stuffy people! And that’s why we watch Gary Vaynerchuk on Wine Library TV.  He’s extremely enthusiastic, energetic and makes wine fun.  I don’t know why but he reminds me of  Emeril, but for wine… And yes, I realize he doesn’t say BAM! after each sentence, just something about his energy perhaps…

In any event, he did a blind tasting of Pinot Noir not too long ago apparently at the specific request of a viewer…

You can go directly to the WineLibrary TV site here for the tasting notes and to buy any of the Pinot Noirs mentioned in the episode.
