It’s time to uncork our Vino Miami blog and finish off another enjoyable wine filled year. Memorable wines and memorable times have marked our calendar with a few notable moments and enjoyable wines to remember along the way. We started out tasting thru the old country with several noatable wines. Lively conversation and a new scoring approach marked our first few tastings. LMNT in Wynwood was the spot and 2010 Principessa Gavia “Gavi” with a overall score of 8.37 was the highest scoring white of the year.
Back into the tastings as we explored the French and found a new definition for “Bait and Switch”… A French Discrepancy marked our night at the French Cafe, “Oui, we like wine but, we charge corkage…” Our night at Buena Vista Bistro also marked Wesley’s first wine club event as a member.
A great Miami evening with notable wines including the winning the highest scored red wine for the year the Justin Isosceles 2008 Paso Robles Blend ranking 8.22
We wrapped our year with our final two tastings at the Miami Culinary Institute’s Tuyo.
Terrific food, excellent service and nice wines directed our attention and our scoring. Ending our blind tastings with the 2009 Chateau Carigan Primm marking our final wining red wine.
Best, your wine captain! –Matt Hege
