The Three-Martini Lunch May Have Gone The Way Of The Buffalo, But This ’85 Monte Bello …

…sure goes the way of the lamb!

Thank you to our wonderful friends at Culinary Eye; great culinary talents that they are, they also sure know how to host a wonderful lunch!

LIBRARY WINES/LIBRARY MONTE BELLO

And I have to tell you, while the 1985 Monte Bello is an incredible wine, it’s actually been a bit of a hard wine to pair of late.

Until now, that is!

I do not exaggerate a bit when I tell you this dish is just about as perfect a pairing as I can imagine; cheers to John and Collins at Culinary Eye for having created such oeno-culinary magic!
