Asimov'sRecs

A rather interesting list of wines to try. I think that, just maybe, he's trying to out-Bonne Jon. Does this mean that Asimov's also arrogant & self-centered??? :-)

I sure hope he is!

I can strongly recommend that Merkelbach!

I've had earlier vintages of Left Foot Charley - good stuff.
Chico - Hey! This Bottle is empty!
Groucho - That's because it's dry Champagne.

Fun list. I've enjoyed the A Vito Ciro, Merkelbach, Faithful Hound (for hound's bday celebration!). Brovia Dolcetto, and especially the Filliatreau in various vintages. I have the Burlotto Pelaverga in my "to drink" queue when I return to wine soon.
