To a Bright Future and a Fresh Start!

In the end, it was with Albariño that we toasted the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Although I’m halfway around the world here in Madrid, and the warmth and excitement from our Spanish hosts is nothing short of thrilling. I will forever associate this hopeful, exciting evening (it is, after all, nighttime here in Madrid) with the 2005 Pazo Piñeiro de Lusco Albariño from the Rias Baixas in Galicia. It’s a bright, fresh wine with depth and complexity, appropriately enough, and has lovely pear and white peach flavors with a citrusy finish. Here’s to a bright and fresh future!
