Hello Cold World!
We are in the midst of a blizzard here in NYC! The first and hopefully not the last time we will see real snow here in the city this winter (the city is quite beautiful in the snow!). I thought I'd make some quick wine recommendations for brooding inside, and waiting out a storm.
The First- Leon Barral Faugeres 2006; a great wine made by an amazing winemaker. Naturally farmed and no chemicals or odd processes in the winemaking this blend of southern french grapes is amazingly complex, and will tide you through a few hours of sniffing along with a good book!

Next up-L'etoile Domaine de Montbourgeau Vin Jaune- A wine for working though ideas if ever there was such a thing! Typical color- quite straw colored and yellow, with flavors of almond, quince and hazelnuts. This is delicious and very different wine from the Jura area of L'etoile!

Finally- the next big thing in Italian wine- Aglianico del Vulture from Biscegila. This great grape from the area near Mount Vulture is known for its chocolate and cherry scents, and great texture in the mouth- a true pleasure to drink these wines offer a lot of flavor and interest for very little money!

Thanks for reading, and enjoy the snow!!
