Courtney’s Wines: BostonJune 1st, 2012
I didn’t bother getting an attractive shot because this argentine malbec brought out pain where there was none before.
The food in Argentina was actually not spicy that I remember. Charred meats and tangy empanadas.
Spanish food isn’t generally hot either. Paella sure isn’t so I spose that would explain the rioja barely working with Indian. I’m certainly reducing my options to cooler climate grape varietals as we’re coming up on D-day.
Man I totally pussed out last night. Had french cuisine and thus rather lovely but opus one-ish Chateau Palmer (bordeaux, of course).
