Other Comments:
I really enjoyed this wine and no not just because it has my name in it's title. Aside from being absolutely delectable, I had it with thinly sliced ribeye steak dipped in seasame oil, salt, and pepper (it's a Korean thing; roast 구이). YUM! But any meat dish, especially off the grill, or even chocolates (preferably dark) would be really good.
