Then, forgive this new, back-dated post.
- Ipswich IPA - Classic amber color, fantastically bitter without being too floral or fruity. For real puritans only.
- Chateau Verdu 2005 - Apparently the only way to make bad wine in Bordeaux in 2005 was to urinate in each barrique. Another cheap, obscure gem, this time from a St.-Emilion satellite. Black cherry and espresso aromas set up the rich, spicy, pruny palate presence. Finish is impressive for a wine that most of us can probably afford.
