My friend John Curtas of Eating Las Vegas fame told me in my early Vegas Wineaux blogging career, “don’t review a restaurant after only one visit.” Well, he’s a genuine restaurant critic with years of experience, and except for the occasional stellar or stinky incident, I have taken his advice to heart.
However, Kimberly’s focus on “Pin the Tail on the Bottle”; that is, bring a bottle that’s out of the ordinary, really humbled us. I made lots of grand pronouncements about aroma, palate, and finish, and largely bombed out. Even on the wine that I brought! Oh well.
