I have this wine and like it. Evidently they got permission from Monk's estate to use his picture. Strange but the wine is good. Italian cabernet-2013 Tolaini Legit Toscana IGT

I remember seeing a big score for the wine from Spectator I think? Stuck in my head because of course it Really surprised me that it wasn’t a gimmick. We need a musical themed TN.

Big score in WS ∴ not a gimmick?

Must come in 375ml bottles so he can enjoy in McPherson Square preaching from the bottle to the masses.

I've also had it and it's definitely worth the $26 Costco is selling it for. Rolland is involved so cross off the country squire. Full bodied, yet reserved in a slightly old world style. I've had Tolaini's other Cab based wine Valdisanti (CS/CF/Sangio blend) which is a fun versatile bottle that pairs with a lot of dishes.

Chris - Thanks. Instead of a "Bordeaux Rose," I would have preferred a pink moscato. Keeps your breath fresh when you proselytize from the bottle in a city park.

After seeing this, I did some research as to Panthers (as in the Pink one) and cougars (as in Snagglepuss). The Pink Panther and Snagglepuss are similar in that they do enjoy the finer things in life.
They are also similar in that mountain lions, cougars, panthers, or pumas - are the same cat (Puma conclor). The different names results from the puma having a wide range across the planet and people in different regions call it different names.

The Florida panther, which is a subspecies of the Puma concolor, is listed as an endangered subspecies. State officials started bringing in Texas cougars and releasing them to mate. There has been a rebound in the Florida panther population. Problem is that the panthers have been losing habitat in Florida.

I think Neal's wine is now Illegit....at least until he gets out of WB jail.

Or if you're a tea drinker, a puma rather than a lion or a panther ...



Who knew that big cats were so varied in their beverage preferences?
