A killer chile relleno (and best refried beans, ever) paired well with a Mi Sueño, 2011 El Llano (Napa Valley AVA). I also tried several other wines, including Baldacci, Longfellow, Noemi (all made by winemaker Rolando Herrera), but the El Llano was definitely my favourite.
Entertainment was provided by a nine piece Mariachi band. The combination of mariachi music, Mexican food and warm sunshine made me feel like I was on my holidays. I was really having a good time, so much so that I didn't even mind being serenaded by the lead singer who sang a very sweet, melodious rendition of La Malagueña right at me. More than a little awkward, but weirdly wonderful nonetheless.
