2009 was a banner year wine year for me in terms of wine discoveries. I found lots of amazing new stuff that I had never tried before -- even after 16 years of being passionate about wine.
So I thought I'd share a couple, and meanwhile ask that you guys do the same...what were your newfound loves of 2009 that you had not 'discovered' before?
Here are a few to get things started:
Whites -- Picpoul de Pinet (Southern France) and Albarino (Spain).
Reds -- old vine, artisinal Montepulciano (Italy); Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley.
How about you?
