Fiorentina with a
Platter full of chips.
Name: Les Banquettes Escarpees Rasteau
Type: red wine
Review/notes: I needed a Côtes du Rhone (because I can’t really afford a decent Chateuneuf du Pape) and the guys at Magnum in Old Town (their web presence here) came through for me as they always do. After a couple of pleasantries a glass with some shiraz appeared then another with the Rasteau. The shiraz really pooped on my taste buds but I’ve learned to take their counsel…yum.
