    OK Robin, in the name of science I'll try a nice Chardonnay with chocolate. A good Cabernet or zinfandel is a nice foil for dark chocolate. Thanks for giving me new gustatory pairings!

    To keep with rules, I would suggest a Porto Late Bottle Vintage, with chocolate.

    But rules are made to be broken…

    There is more behind my first post than a laugh. Playing like every note could be your legacy is a very important part of my teaching. It makes you THINK about the value that each note could have and encourages playing with wild abandon.

    When you have enough wine, who the hell cares what color the chocolate really is? The point is play the horn well, put it in the case, and celebrate with a favorite ferminted beverage and confection of your choice. You've EARNED IT!

    We are born, we die, the key to enjoying, truly enjoying LIFE, is what goes on in between. And I, like rowuk, plan on going out with a smile etched onto my corpse, as I have been bad, oh, I have been very bad, and as a result, I love life, and I EARNED IT! So much so that I chose a career to enhance (and hopefully expand) the life of others.

    Very important development, Rowuk : in most of your posts you appear as THE reference (so necessary for us) for all technical issues. This one is very important, and that makes us feel better.
