Yeah, I’m milking it, I know, but we had to open a nice bottle of Cava and celebrate a little last night. Grilled steaks, calçots, brussel sprouts with mushrooms and a 2004 Rivola, from Abadia Retuerta. Incredible night and I learned one important thing to remember, 2004 Ribera del Duero, STOCK UP! I’ve been impressed by the few I’ve had, but last night confirmed that they are a real treat!
Here’s a short little podcast explaining a bit about our night as we got ready to light up the grill and toast with some Cava. Enjoy, Ryan
PS. I’ll try to explain more later but Calçots on the grill are about the greatest food we’ve had in a while!
PSS. Here’s a link to the producer of the Cava we tasted. Big thumbs up on the wine, big thumbs down on the site. No way to link to anything, all flash and ANNOYING. Maybe I’m just crabby at the moment, but it really isn’t well laid out, but if you can find the wine, do try it!
