monticello cellars

What to bring to a BYOB dinner with Dr. Vino? I have no idea.

This one was good, but now it’s gone. Twenty years old and, according to the friend who brought it by, 5 years older than it should have been. (Yeah, but so was that philosophy professor I dated as an undergrad, and I didn't mind the extra miles on that one so much either.)

So for tonight it’s either a Tinto Pesquera 2002, or I’ll cop out with something that Dr. Vino served up at his Wine & Politics of Spain, Argentina and Chile seminar last year. List below. They’re all good, and they’re all pretty cheap.

  • 2003 BenMarco Malbec, Argentina $19

  • 2003 Nifares Toro, Spain $10 (smooth like buttah)

  • 2004 Martin Codax Albarino, Spain $11

  • 2000 Casa Silva Carmenere "Los Linguas", Chile $15 (merlot look-alike w/o the "Sideways" stigma)

  • 2001 Lacrimus Rioja Crianza, Spanish $19
