Have you visited ProfessorBainbridge.com before? It’s a blog hosted by a corporate law professor, but every now and then (pardon the incoming pun) he corks off a rather fine wine review, and recently, he wrote a post about our 1994 Monte Bello that I quite enjoyed.
You can read the full post here, but one thing I specifically wanted to note was the dish he paired with this wine when he served it: Lamb Chops with Mint Salsa Verde! Sounds extraordinary. The recipe comes from Saveur.com, and you can find it here. Oddly enough, Saveur.com recommended pairing the dish with a “high-acid, ultracrisp white”, which the good professor disparages as being “absurd.” I have to say, I think I’m on the professor’s side with this one! Anyone out there have other pairing suggestions for the 1994 Monte Bello? Enquiring minds want to know!
