Eduardo Rivera Irizarri rolled cigars for Fidel Castro, a scary job as the dumb CIA tried constantly to sabotage the cigars with explosives. If only they’d waited: cigars eventually sent Fidel to the rest home anyway. Fidel’s secretary, Celia Sanchez, and Zino Davidoff, invented the brand Cohiba to wrap about Eduardo’s cigars. Conspiradors Zar Brooks, Elena Golokova, Nicola Tuccia and Luis Juminez Garcia produces this explosive black wine from hundred-and-something-year-old Alicante bouschet bush vines in La Mancha. They wrapped the bottle in the Cohiba package and sell it here to show Rockford a thing or two about Alicante bouschet. Scary. 92 +++ points
