Re: Should we be evaluating natural wine differently?

Maybe we should do the same for high octane wines Personally, for me, I don’t see a reason to give accommodations for wines I don’t prefer (I have had a number of natural wines that I like and quite a few that I don’t). For example, winemakers put sulphur in wine for a reason - I don’t want to accom...

The only thing that's worse than ketchup on a hot dog is mayo on pastrami, with a double whammy when you put it on white bread. I actually have no idea how mayo would taste on pastrami, and I hope I never do.
It pastrami on white bread is akin to a sandwich, so ketchup would be fine
