We finally dusted off the wine tasting cobwebs last night and had a dinner with some friends at Delicado in Blues Point.
Jamie, the wine store manager, had generously given Jeff and I a spontaneous tasting a few weeks before when we randomly popped in one Sunday morning to buy some Vermouth. That tasting was so awesome we asked if he could do another one for us over dinner at the attached restaurant.
So Friday night. Over tapas that Jamie put together, we had some cider, a cab from Navarro, a Mencia (my favorite of the night with it’s nose of clean men’s soap), a Tinto di Toro, and a Petite Verdot blend. Plus some Pedro Ximenez Sherry to go with the churros and chocolate fondue at the end. Burp.
