  • I am a new wine lover. A year or two ago I was having troubles staying away from 'the sauce'.  It wasn't alcoholism, per se, but it was getting to the point where I was spending much of my money and getting very little done. So, being that I am working in a fine dining restaurant, Carnevor Steakhouse in Milwaukee, WI, I decided to begin studying... Read More

    Il Bastardo which I am not but I must review this wine. The label says rich, fat and luscious and I agree. It has a pungent earthy cassis aroma which fills the nostrils with ample taste promises. Upon taste it is lush, grape with balanced tannins. It's crisp, grapey thorough to the palate. Coats the mouth with nice flavor and a lasting finish. Read More

    We'll turn to my dinner in a moment, but for the wine tonight I picked out one ... time favorites, the 2009 Il Bastardo Rosso di Toscana, a lighter red wine from Tuscany which would pair very well with my dinner.
