    Well I live in France and nobody would know what 'brandy' is. I don't drink cognac, but I sure like it
    for cooking. I have just fried some 'millas', topped it with raspberries and honey, then flambeed it with
    cognac. Delicious.

    In 1994, I converted a small closet in my Manhattan apartment to a climate-controlled wine 'cellar'.
    Peaking around 750 bottles, it quickly overflowed into racks I built along a bedroom wall (why
    bedroom?... because, at 66 degrees, it is the coolest room in the apartment!)...

    My collection now
    numbers just under 400 bottles, and affords me the ability to hold wines for the appropriate time and
    occasion, and enjoy them at their peak maturity, often at a much lower cost than I would have had to pay
    to buy wines at their peak.

    The current inventory includes 101 varieties from 33 regions across 15
    countries.

    Keeping wine for the Long Haul, indeed!

    Neil Diamond wrote (and sang) Red, Red, Wine. How could anyone make such a mistake!

    I was excited about this wine because I really enjoyed the Crocodillo. However this is a big wine in need of a big meal.Great full wine for a lower alcohol wine. Fruity on the nose with a crisp finish.

    I routinely scamper away from wine at this price point but found myself alone with a glass of it at a family gathering during the recent holiday. Very impressed by what it brings to palate. Earthy grip, dirt, rocks, sand, gravel, all good, especially for such a low priced wine. Some fruit but complexities are the star. Even detected southern Dominican cigar wrapper and variety of spices on finish. Bravo, Thorny Devil, Bravo
