Dark nights make me yearn for rib-sticking cuisine and the wines to go with it.
August 2020 Wine Club
One of the best aspects of my job is-obviously-the wine. One of the others may not be so obvious: the people. While I have met a few truly miserable wine makers, importers, wine reps, etc, there are far more fascinating and lovely people. Which brings me to this month’s wine club selections, all courtesy of a brand-new friend from a new-to-me company. But taste this month’s selections-from a steely Sancerre stand-in to a blackberry and black pepper-tinged Northern Rhone Syrah- and you’ll understand why we’ll be seeing much more of this new friend.
