This month Mike goes regional and familiar - and then takes a left turn past the equator with a Chilean Carmenere.
A return to the big, bad-@ss side of the tracks, with a Daou red blend from Paso Robles and a robust, richly-fruited Spanish Priorat.
A “Vespa Bianco” from the famed Bastianich family, and a Tuscan Tenuta di Trinoro “Le Cupole.”
“Papa Celso” Dolcetto di Dogliani and a Sauvignon Blanc from Guy Saget...
The 1st South African wine Mike ever tasted, and a risky introduction to Riesling Spatlese.
