NV Codorníu Brut Rosado, Cava
Thirsty and famished after a long morning of walking, I plopped down on Casa Mono's bar and lusted for a sparkling wine. Yes, a 100% pinot noir Cava, sharing the same Catalan heritage as the cuisine served. So refreshing, so delicious - bright red berries, minerally and intense. Finely textured, just delicious with our seafood, and especially with our ethereal jamón ibérico. Great length, and not surprisingly, I drank most of the bottle. Wandered back downtown full, a bit tipsy, and very, very happy.
