The best wine I tasted in my tour around the grand tasting tent at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival was the 2006 Chateau Lascombes Grand Cru Classé Margaux, at $70. Oh, it was nice. Black raspberry aromas and flavors, with cinnamon, cloves and mocha. Very smooth.
The most interesting new wine (to me, at least) was the 2006 Vatistas Dry White Wine of Monemvasia, from the assyrtiko grape, from Greece, at $25. It was rich and dry, with flavors of vanilla and minerals. Always fun to try something new.
I scoured the tents for good wines in the $12-and-under category that everybody seems to want these days. Check my column on Thur., Feb. 26 for tasting notes.
