1978 Ridge Monte Bello Half Bottle
4/6/2011-The Wednesday Knitters met at the home of Gary Rose and Laura Laskowski to enjoy a delicious meal of spinach, ricotta and parmesan stuffed chicken with optional marinara sauce, knitters salad, and brownies. The brown bag wine for the night was clearly a love/hate wine. Half the participants loved it and half hated it. The wine had a leaky cork and very low fill, and as a half bottle, probably aged more than a full bottle; however, it had little browning and exhibited the aged cabernet flavors of coffee/tobacco and red currants, and was guessed to be an older Bordeaux by several members.
