    Wine Tasting

    Before my fabulous Zion dinner experience of yesterday evening, I was very kindly invited to a wine tasting at Eden Rock. The two wines of the partnership between Baron Philippe de Rothschild & Napa Valley legend, Robert Mondavi, were served — “Overture,” the so-called “second wine” of the Opus One winery, & its renowned “Opus One” wine. The former is a bit lighter & younger, it seemed, than the flagship, original wine of this famous partnership. Thank you to Cyril Bossard, sommelier.

    But, do you know the difference in a Boulevardier and a Man About Town ?

    This cocktail from Gramercy Tavern in NYC, the Man About Town, is a take on a Boulevardier (which is like a Negroni, but with bourbon or rye instead of gin). Here, spicy rye is the star, complemented by the bittersweet Sicilian amaro, Cynar.

    Dear Sir,

    A Boulevardier is only made with bourbon.

    Please fact check such critical posts.

    Re: Wine Tasting

    well, we'll agree that Mr. Dennis is both an SBH Boulevardier and Man About Town.

    though, you'll [JEK] probably have a problem with his customary vodka (!!!) gimlet
