Oysters and Malbec
I had Dinner at Cyprus last week. As I was being seated, I saw a bottle of Luigi Bosca Malbec in one of the wine racks, so I knew what I was drinking with dinner.
The waiter came to give us the specials and mentioned oysters, a long running favorite of mine. We ordered the rest of our meal and begin to enjoy our wine.
The oysters arrived as I was sipping my Malbec. I looked at my wine and the oysters and thought, “This will be interesting.”
Well it wasn’t, it was beautiful.
Oysters and Malbec, who knew?
The Luigi Bosca Malbec has a savory note on the finish that paired quite well with the fresh brininess of the oysters, there was also a subtle textural relationship that was equally enjoyable. I often tell people that it’s OK to drink what you like and eat what you like and just roll the dice.
I need to take my own advice more often.
Drink well, Curt
