Last Valentine’s day, we had a lovely tasting menu at No. 9 Park. It wound up as the second best meal of the year, but no shame in that. At the time, I wrote that

There was a very fine duck trio (breast, confit, sausage), but it was upstaged by an amazing pinot noir. I don’t recall ever having that feeling before.

I managed to get three bottles of that Pinot Noir, and we had one of them tonight for our meta-anniversary. Lovely wine. (Hirsch Vineyards, The Bohan Dillon Pinot Noir 2007)

That tart is nice. It's simple, too: a blind-baked crust, a layer of caramel, and a layer of ganache. Piece of cake, bjt lovely.
