Yes, it is true. The weather in Los Angeles this past week was hot. But a friend in Germany reported that it was below freezing for them. I believe October should fall somewhere in between. But hey, that is what you get with Global Warming. All out weather chaos. So instead of allowing the thermometer to dictate what wine I drink, I am going to defer to the calendar. Are you with me???
Sommelier David agreed completely, and has come up with a classic madeira that is utterly autumn. The Rare Wine Company Historic Series Savannah Verdelho Madeira fits that description perfectly, but at $50 costs more than our typical Wine Of The Week. But don’t let that fool you, for the quality of wine this is still an exceptional price. Plus this one holds longer after opening it, so you don’t feel the pressure to drink it all in one sitting.
