Stopped in one of my favorite wine bars in L.A., Lou on Vine street the other night -- a great place to start or wrap up an evening for a sip of something fab with a great nibble or dessert.
The find that eveningt:
From Spain: Pere Ventura Cava Brut Rose.
I almost didn't order it --I mean really, cava? But then I remembered I was at Lou and anything there has to be good.
Well, wow. Any under whelming comparisons disappeared when I tasted the rosy bubbly -- crisp and dry with strong strawberry notes. A very nice surprise to include on the list very good sparklers.
