I shared the wine with a couple of aficionados, one of whom crinkled his his nose, put the glass down and said "NGTPIM." I gave him a puzzled look and he said, "Not going to put in mouth if it smells that bad." He then proceeded to pour it out.
Over four days I dined on food from some of the best chefs in the Big Easy as well as some up and coming culinary superstars. I stopped in at one of my favorite New Orleans eateries, Louisiana Bistro, where Chef Mars served up course after tasty course.
