On the night of the Game of Thrones premier (4/24/16), I went off with some friends to Studio City for a BBQ — little did I know I’d be in for one amazing Armenian feast!
From my cellar: 2005 Château Rayas Côtes du Rhône Château de Fonsalette Reserve. 93 points. Medium red. Spicy cherry and blackcurrant on the nose, with deeper licorice and tobacco adding power. Fresher red berry flavors show impressive minerality. Finishes with silky tannins, gentle grip and an echo of sweet red berries. This has very good balance and focus.
Overall one hell of a BBQ!
