There is a saying ‘never look a gift horse in the mouth’.  So, with that good piece of advice I will refrain from trashing a recent bottle of wine that was given to Moxie at Christmas time.  I did not enjoy it, nor would I recommend it.  Since it was not purchased by myself I will not review it as I normally would, however- here is the picture.  The good news about the whole episode was the dinner.  Moxie and I banged up some amazing stuff:  Bison, Beef, Chicken, Chorizo, sweet potatoes and mushrooms with roasted Brussel Sprouts and sautéed spinach with bacon bits.  It all came together nicely but the Bison was the highlight.
