Anima Negra 2003. Still amazingly fresh. Second #lockdownwine of the night.

2011 Raul Pérez La Penetencia. Brilliant wine. Truly awful label. Tonight’s #lockdownwine

Looking on the bright side of #lockdown2020. I just discovered Carmen París voice. Here singing a Neruda poem. Beautiful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqt7jZZIphs
