– Piedmont, Italy. Bright fruit on the nose and palate along with subtle dryness. Had a medium finish with strawberry hints on the end. Sorry, can’t find the photo I posted!
Needed to stop in at Leon’s Full Service downtown Decatur for said glass. The food is pretty tasty and if you’re in say hi to the bartender with the huge beard. Also, get the bacon in a glass and you WANT THE PEANUT BUTTER!
A fantastic full bodied wine from the Rhône region of France. Complex with leather, big fruit/mulled wine and a nice, medium to long finish. It opens up nicely to reveal softer fruit and tannins.
Admittedly, the wine opened up nicely with some time in the glass. I believe this was. Pretty sure we picked this up at Your Dekalb Farmer’s Market, here in Decatur, GA.
My favorite spot, with a special guest (to me) having come with this year. The suit was bumping, the crowd dope and we all got to ring in the new year with some good sparkling wine. I couldn’t think of a better way to ring in 2019, than with Timperiss, Zoo, Cigar Mike and others, along with my favorite bar staff at my second home. Few pics, because I was too busy enjoying good company.
It didn’t hurt that our friends from General Cigar were also present, handing out deals, specials, and promoting a good set of blends, including the new Punch (review to come), CAO stuff, etc. It’s always a pleasure to hang with those guys.
