Mixed Case Bottle 1: LoHud Wine of the Week – Ameztoi Rubentis Txakolina Rosado 2011


For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Piermont Fine Wine & Spirits.

Ameztoi Rubentis Txakolina Rosado 2011 is bottle 1 in our series. To see the rest, click here: Mixed Case on Small Bites.
