Wine Curious

Posted by Patrick Alan Coleman on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 3:26 PM

Maybe it’s the fact I’m working on a piece about wine for next week’s Lush Life (gasp), but goddamn if I didn’t find a recent e-mail from ten 01’s sommelier Jeff Groh more than a little intriguing. In said e-mail, Groh references the Big Lebowski, the Notorious B.I.G., Willem Dafoe, and Botox, along with a few tantalizing descriptions:

If the first wine in our flight was the equivalent of a Shirley Temple the second is a turn of the century Coca-Cola…

This is a wine of such fortitude that it could warm the constitution of a corpse - mind you it does taste like blackberry jam…

Lastly is a wine that passes through the country of comfort on its way to a land called pure seduction… naturally it’s French.

Have any interest in finding out what the hell Groh is talking about? Walk into ten 01 tonight anytime after 5 pm with $14 and a thirst for wine to curb your curiosity.
