Goats Do Roam White 2011, Wo Western Cape, South Africa $11.95 (237313)
I tasted this wine with the creator and owner, Charles Back. It’s crafted with the same grape varieties as wine from his favorite French region “Cote de Rhone”. Its like a first date with a small town girl. It smells pretty good, its not complicated or bright, and it would blend nicely with a picnic. Keep a few of these in the fridge to help you get to second base.
Descendientes De J. Palacios Pétalos 2009, Do Bierzo, Spain $22.95 (675207)
This Spanish wine is not to be missed. Its edgy, delicate and complicated all at once. When I popped the cork, all I could hear is Freddy Mercury singing “Barcelona”. Suck this back with your favorite Queen and a chunk of Manchego cheese. Can you do the Fandago?
