    Hello, an Advance Sommelier was watching and found that your expert did not exactly match the wine. For example, normally it is recommended to match a bright acid like Albarino (white wine from Spain) with a citrus sauce instead of a low acid grape like Viognier and a Pino Nior would have been a much better match with perhaps a duck and the winter vegetable instead of the steak. The Champagne was an ok match and the chocolate was good but perhaps a sweet wine like a Port might be favored. This is a trick business I recommend seeking more information from other Advance Sommeliers might help. Thanks for reading “Happy New Year”!!!

    it would have been nice to find the suggested wines after being referred to the KCal site for more information. I am disappointed to not find the named wines and their pairings here. ;-(
