I don't know what to say about the latest heat wave but the best response is come inside, and savor some roasted milk-fed baby goat, or grilled BoerBok leg, along with some salty almonds, olives, bocarones, and grilled gambas. Let's make some noise as I'll be opening up a variety of special Riojas, mostly from the Alavesa, which we will make available by the glass tonight only including some '91 Tondonia, '00 Prada Enea, '02 Bosconia, '03 Alberdi, and lots of '04's and '05's all Reservas. but don't fret, there are some delicious Crianzas and Tinto de Mesas, along with very special Blancas from Muga, Cifras, Tierra Fidel, Gravonia and a couple of Txakolinas. If i can't beat the heat i can certainly celebrate the magic that is Rioja Alavesa like the good old days before air conditioning.
