Editor's Note: Last week was busy, what with a visit from famed Bordeaux negociant Bill Blatch and New Zealand winemaker Mike Weersing (Pyramid Valley Vineyards), plus social visits, Sopexa tastings and more. I think everyone is still processing. Here's a preview of what we've been drinking.
Joe Mankein, Wine buyer for Spain, Argentina, Chile and Portugal.
Cantillon Rosé de Gambrinus: This sour raspberry beer does not get any better – don’t hate!
Cantillon Kriek: Sour cherry lambic beer at its finest.
2005 Lalaudey Moulis-en-Medoc: A token Bordeaux for the list. Showing really well – plump dark fruits, balanced acidity, youthful.
