Mexican Magic

It’s Cinco de Mayo today, and we plan to celebrate with a glass of one of our favorite wines from Mexico. The quality of Mexico’s wines has been skyrocketing in recent years. Some of the best include powerful, super-soft cabernet sauvignons and red blends from Baja California such as Adobe Guadalupe’s Gabriel and José Luis Durand’s Ala Rota. While in Cabo San Lucas two weeks ago, I was also knocked out by a new wine called Megacero–a fantastic, complex merlot, shiraz, cabernet blend from the vast northern state of Chihuahua. The Pope was in Mexico right before me, and he tried Megacero before I did. Man, Francis is just too cool.
