Obscure Delights: Grosjean Freres Torrette, Valle d'Aoste, 2012
Nostrana ’s superbly maintained wine list and a late evening
dinner with Jake Parrot, omni-connoisseur 
of alcoholic beverages, conjoined to re-acquaint me with the wines of

If I ever start a spirits company, it will be Octothorpe Spirits, if only so that I can ironically use #octothorpe  on Twitter.

Wine With Jake: Vinirari Balteo 2010, Val d'Aosta, Italy at Nostrana

50 year old Laubade Armagnac in a cocktail? Cue the outrage!

you crazy, or at the very least a perpetrator of high crimes and misdemeanors,
for desecrating such a venerable brandy by mixing it in a **shudder**
cocktail. Your pa...
