Amdur recommends:

  • Malaga: Jorge Ordoñez & Co. "Seleccion Especial" '05: available at Top Line Wine & Spirits and Red Carpet Liquor. $25 - $30.  This is from a Spanish importer and Austrian winemaker (who recently passed away.)  100% muscat grapes.
  • Zeni Moscato DOC Rosa Trentino: Not available locally (except at Lou), but Silverlake Wines can order this wine from the importer.
  • Chateau de Suronde AOC Quarts de Chaume '04: available at Wine Country in Signal Hill. $125. Silverlake Wine can also order this wine from the importer.  This is one of Lou's favorite wines of 2007. Intense and profound wine, it can age 100 years.  Explosive flavor. Made in very small quantities from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes.
  • Sagrantino Passito DOCG Scacciadiavoli '03: available at the Wine House and K&L. $35. Traditional sacramental wine.
