Tip: When you’re trying to lose a few extra pounds, don’t make brownies.
The tasting included my first Sauterne. I’m used to late harvest style wines being more apricot in character – this was definitely ‘dried pear’. I can’t say I was a fan of the mouthfeel – too syrupy sweet for me. Good to know.
The afternoon was topped off by a Zin at Tzin. Gotta love a place that serves wine in 2 oz portions for $3 or so. I’d go back. But the muscox. Come on. I don’t get why restaurants are serving muscox. It’s got to be novelty. But you don’t taste novelty. You taste very gamey, tough, dry meat from the tundra. If you eat it, and hate game, I forgive you. Just know that extremely excellent game meats do exist.
