2001 Sangre de Toro
A pulsating curry dinner set the scene for a little drama fueled by this delicious offering from Torres. The evening started with the fervent question "What does a Honey Two do?". The immediate answer was "to keep the wife happy when Number One was away". Not long after the air was sundered by flipping hands to the back of heads and only then was the wine opened! And what an opening, all thanks to the Annapolitan bound "Lodger" (previously known as Li'l Dubya). Although the smallish bull (confirmed by the Lodger's unnecessarily close inspection) dangling from the bottle gave little indication that there was a whole lot of Sangre involved, this liquid star from Cataluyna set a standard for the future. The evaluation of noses and ears ("His are so cute!") followed. Maybe next time the Gran Sangre de Toro if the budget permits.
