Most memorable wine?
A 2003 Camus from Camus Pere et Fils.

What was your first wine?
The first wne I remember was givien to me by my grandmother with a handful of chocolate chip cookies. I believe it was a chardonnay.

What’s your most unusual wine experience?
It would have to be the 2003 Camus. I was in the back room of the wine shop in which I work and I poured a glass of the 2003 Camus. Just the nose was euphoric and I caught myself almost dancing. Forturnately, no one was in the back room with me. The taste matched up to and more of everything the nose promised.

Which wine do you love at the moment?
Navarro Carreas Malbec
