Torrontes (and a Kogi Taco Truck) – Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 28

Torrontes (and a Kogi Taco Truck): “Smells like flaah-werhz” is Mark Oldman’s catchphrase — inspired by his friend Adrian — to describe the characteristically floral Argentine white, Torrontés. Despite its nose “fit for FTD,” Torrontés is dry, light, and restrainedly alcoholic, making it ideal with spicy food, including the delectable Korean-Mexican eats Mark locates at a roving Kogi taco truck in Los Angeles.torrontes kogi taco truck
