My "Walking Dead Dinners" are turning my friends into wineauxs.

Tonight, we're watching Bottle Shock and having our own little Judgment of Paris.

I've wrapped the bottles already, so I can't give specifics until after the unveiling. All bottles in the $15-$20 range.

A Bordeaux Style Red ("left bank") vs. a Haut Medoc

A Napa Chardonnay vs. White Burgundy (from Mâcon, I think)

An Amador Zinfandel "Port" vs. Banyuls.

The Menu (because I don't want to fire up my oven for more than 10 minutes).

Pasta (gluten free) with mushroom red sauce, (vegan) alfredo sauce, and (gluten free) alfredo sauce.

Grilled asparagus with lemon butter.

Garlic toast.

(The other meat eater and I are having a teensy tiny piece of grilled steak. Rare, of course.)

Chocolate cake and cherry chocolate soy desert.

Pictures and verdicts to follow.

Eh, we all know Asparagus doesn't pair well with most wines. We just needed something green.

I'm confused by the port comparison -- what is Banyuls? Or is this simply a fortified California vs fortified french comparison?
