Corbett's Notes:

A million years ago I co-hosted an epic Friendsgiving in the beautiful Hudson Valley. Friends came from far and near and the food was bountiful. Our postprandial conversations went late into the evening and all the wine was drunk. Well, almost all the wine. There was a half bottle of cooking port left and you better bet we drank it. Please, please, please don’t be like me and my friends. Have a plan for late evening hangs. I like to have Cardamaro on hand for little nips in the evening. Cardamaro is a little bit bitter and a little bit sweet making it the perfect glass with pumpkin or apple pie or just a cozy curl up on the sofa by the fire.

To Pair?

A full & good conversation

What do I like to drink?
Madeira would be my desert island wine and although it was an everyday favorite in the colonial era, that may be a bit impractical today. If you’ve never tried Madeira, come talk to me!
I’m a bit of a collector at heart and I’ll try (and likely buy) lots of styles of wine.
I love Chenin Blanc for its stylistic versatility - what’s not to like about a grape that can be made crisp and dry, rich and oxidative with great aging potential, sparkling, or fully sweet. I like my red wines light, high-acid, and low alcohol with a nice chill. Gamay is a go-to red whether I want something simple for the porch, or something a bit more serious for a special dinner. I’m also a huge fan of aromatized wines and think everyone should drink more vermouth.
