Many thanks, Víctor, for correcting our young Joey on the Montecillo score (he reminds me of a girl at the nearby Gourmet Garage who insists on calling marcona almonds "maricona" almonds). I believe what he is trying to do, as a fledgling Rioja Guru, is to score his own, personal, trademarked, endelessly-repeated error. I think this could very well be his very own "Dominico de Pingus".
Oh, and Joe, it's a good thing I hadn't seen this before we saw each other on Thursday. The vinous harm I could have inflicted... No wonder the words "Rioja Santiago" were rolling off your tongue so merrily.
When I run everything through spell check, as I try to before posting, it changes Montecillo to Monticello (the home of Thomas Jefferson). I try to catch it, but sometimes I am so excited to reply to Victor that it slips through.
Vinous harm? I seem to recall something from Luxembourg...
