This wine was recommened to me to try with
some dry aged New York Strips I am making tonight. Has anyone tried it before, I did a search and nothing came up.

Hi Afa# and welcome to the board. Think I posted on this bottling a couple of years ago. This reliable producer makes good juice in every vintage. Drink up. WW

Well it started off big and bold and I though it had great promise, but then seemed to fall
flat on it's face. It was not bad, but the first taste made me feel that there was going to be more depth to it. I normally don't drink
high 15.6% alcohol wines and I was wondering
if it would make a difference. Maybe that was it?

Was the first sip before the steak? I don't think a wine like that is good with beef--or with any food really.

By the way, used to be good film, agfa...

Yes, it was before I had the first taste of the beef. I guess I should just go back to super tuscans for beef???
