So...which wine won? The usual affirmation of victory, the first completely drained bottle, was not available as this was rather a decorous tasting. I even took notes. Here's a photo of the still-unfinished bottles from last night, just to prove that we were paying attention.
We all enjoyed the 2009 Villa Ragazzi, of course. It was just right with marinated, grilled flank steak. Check Eating/Drinking for the marinade recipe.
Full disclosure: before the tasting we enjoyed a 10-year old bottle of Mumm DVX, a nostalgic choice because Tucker had planted that special vineyard for Guy Devaux. It was lovely, too. Oh, and some 2010 St. Supéry Sauvignon Blanc. The galette was delicious.
