[Torres] Viña Esmeralda in a 750ml Green Bottle @11% from Spain 2013

Almost perfectly clear with a subtle yellow tinge.

Mild but singular grape smell.

A full mouth of sweetness is quickly overwhelmed by a pass of dryness leaving a skunky taste in your mouth.

The skunky-sourness builds with each sip. It may be why everyone drinking looks like they just smelled someone else's fart. Don't be shy, you know that look.

Perhaps this was a rancid bottle. It really gets worse and worse as it breathes. Decanting it makes it worse again.

2015-11-15 [Graphic India] Black Tiger #1 (2015)

Graphic India spins out of Virgin Comics but has a completely different feel without Deepak Chopra's heady influence. This specific hero is created by the driving force behind the India-based comics, Sharad Davarajan. Sharad is a fascinating man who appears driven and accomplished.

He handed the title over to writer Chuck Dixon and artist Graham Nolan.

2015-11-05 [Amigo] Rogues! Odd Parenthood 4x1

I have not read any of the previous volumes of this series. In fact I had not even heard of it before this one was proffered in Diamond. It was fantasy, and I wanted to give it a try. It was also not a mainstream comic book company which added to the attraction. Yes, I like supporting the smaller companies and indie projects. I was a little worried as...
