This was a fun Christmas gift from a new neighbor that we’ve only said “hello” to once or twice to throughout the year. (This is only because they are hardly ever at home and we’re pretty busy too.) Anyway, I digress.
I’ve seen this wine in stores, but I’ve never tried it before. Ours was a Cabernet from 2014. We brought it with us to MN and enjoyed it with ham, mashed potatoes and scalloped corn. Now, my taste buds were still a little off from being sick, but here’s my take on the wine. It packs a very grapey aroma. The color is a rich, purple with an intense, almost black center in the glass. There’s flavors of tobacco, vanilla, toffee, cocoa and blueberry. It’s a very good wine to enjoy with cheese and crackers or paired with a beef stew. I prefer it better paired with food than just on its own.
You can find this at your local wineshop for about $24.
