I grew up in a house that only served stupefying, 19% alcohol, homemade Zinfadel, Alicante, Moscato, or a combination of any or all of these. When we ate out, my dad would order a bottle of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. I dated a guy who was an accomplished waiter and new all about and taught me about the finer things -and spoiled me with them! I hail from a town that ritualistically celebrated the uncorking of Beaujolais every year. I know absolutely nothing about wine, but I know what I like. Up until tonight, I was strictly a white wine kinda girl with a penchant for Pinot Grigio. Tonight however, Finca Los Primos Malbec made me a convert. I not only like this wine, I love it. In fact, I think I want to have its babies.
It didn't hurt that it was accompanied by a perfectly medium-rare rib eye steak.
