So around World War Two these kids stumble into an alternate
dimension and fight in a big war. Then about a year later they go back,
but it's been over a thousand years in this other place, yet everything
is about the same. Okay, fine, it took a long time for people to invent
the steam engine in our world too, and some people still have kings, so
we'll let that one pass. Maybe there wasn't any need for a Magna Carta
But assuming the math still holds, it has been about
sixty thousand years since this whole thing started. And a lot is going
to happen in sixty thousand years. Alternative systems of government
are going to show up, maybe even a few times. Even the stupidest people
in the world are going to figure out something good after sixty
Of course we have to keep in mind that, in
our world, no one is going to throw out a magic wardrobe after their
grandparents die, especially if they've just inherited a country
estate. So we're pretty sure that somewhere out there at a club in
present day London is a posh kid dancing with Peaches Geldolf and
talking about the time he snorted a line off of a talking lion who
lives on a starship run by centaurs and giants in a sort of
Marxian/Maoist commune with a non-centralized government. It's only

75 years ago last week, our nation ended a bold experiment in
uptight, joyless puritanism. We're talking about Prohibition, of
course, the only Constitutional amendment ever repealed. But not before
it destroyed a vast and richly varied array of breweries, distilleries,
and of course, wineries. U.S. winemaking emerged from the fifteen-year
ban in such terrible shape it would take decades to recover. Thanks a
lot, Great-Great-Grandpa! Awesome idea you had there!
was too smart to fall for that. They've been making wine there since
the 1500's, and they weren't about to throw that away just to satisfy a
few axe-wielding Ladies' Aid busybodies. You might think Argentines are
latecomers to the grape game, but that's just because they've been
hogging it all for themselves: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentine_wine">according to Wikipedia</a>,
some 90% of the wine produced in Argentina is consumed there, a
whopping 45 liters per person per year. Maybe they know something we
And today's your chance to find out. And with Malbec,
generally considered the signature Argentine varietal. Available here
for the first time anywhere, this Colores del Sol 2008 Malbec is the
ideal detour off of the well-trodden Cabernet highway. It's rich. It's
juicy. It's grown in the pure light and cool air of the Mendoza region,
home of the highest vineyards in the world. And the vines are watered
with snowmelt from the Andes.
We don't know if that has
anything to do with this Malbec's muscular, alluring dark cherry,
blackberry, rose petal, sweet oak, and mocha character. And we don't
care. Any wine this young that goes so well with hearty gaucho cuisine like steaks has nothing to prove to us. As it gets older, it should mellow out a little, as is true of all of us.
So good call on rejecting that whole Prohibition idea, Argentina. And nice try at keeping your robust Malbec to yourselves.
