Seven Hills Riesling & Some Roman Style Gnocchi

My friends Justin (aka The Chubby Vegetarian, which doesn't really fit since he isn't chubby) & Amy invited Kelly & I over for dinner Tuesday night. Whenever we dine at Chez TCV its always unique, always interesting & always super delicious. After an exhausting day at the store Justin could tell I needed a stiff drink so he immediately offered me a glass of Pappy Van Winkle 15 year old Single Barrel Bourbon. This heavenly Kentucky elixir was brimming with notes of brown sugar, vanilla, clove & smoke. Perfect to take the day's edge off. After we finished our Bourbon I popped a bottle of Seven Hills Rielsing 2008 Columbia Valley (suggested retail $14.99). This racy, bright riesling is a blend from Evergreen, Willard & Snipes Vineyards. At 11% alcohol is light, lithe & refreshing on the palate. Its crisp & clean with electric acidity that was perfect as an aperitif.

While we sipped on this tasty little riesling Justin worked on his pumpkin gnocchi.
