Obama has great taste in wine!

It was recently reported that in last weeks state dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao that they served  2008 DuMol Russian River Valley Chardonnay, 2005 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, and a 2008 Poet’s Leap Botrytis Riesling.

Although some might accuse Pres. Obama with being somewhat elitist with the Quilceda Creek ($200+ a bottle) I find it quite satisfying that he served one of North America's best wines and that instead of opting for one of Bordeaux's First Growth wines that the Chinese are no doubt obsessed with, he showcased the best of what we offer here in the US.

It better be. He wouldn't wanna embarrass himself among the other elitists, right?
