The IronChevsky and I go way back.
He was actually there for the debut of our #WineBloggersTasting Series. That was the day the bloggers took on Robert Parker.
It had been a while since I’d seen The IronChevsky. He’s a busy man. I’m a busy man.
But then along came #CabernetDay.
The IronChevsky likes Cabernet. I like Cabernet.
Do the math.
The IronChevsky and I, we like #CabernetDay.
#CabernetDay was August 30th. And the word had come down. The IronChevsky was coming.
I was ready. 1985 Monte Bello. 1995 Monte Bello. 2005 Monte Bello. A three-decade/three-vintage vertical. The Library. Yeah, I was ready.
Plus, I was packing extra heat. 1989 Monte Bello in a magnum. A 2003 Estate Cabernet.
Yeah, I was ready for The IronChevsky.
Monte Bello Confidential.
Said The Iron Chevsky, “Monte Bello Sensational.”

Until we meet again, IronChevsky. Until we meet again.
