I welcomed Tom home tonight from his trip to West Palm Beach to visit his mother. He came home just in time for cocktails and the smell of dinner in the oven. We had a great cocktail hour catching up on all the news.
We had this French Chateau Mont-Redon Cotes du Rhone 2007 with our roasted, stuffed chicken, and baked squash. For dessert I made an apple crisp. Dinner was delicious and so was the wine. The color in the glass is brilliant; the nose a fragrant and clove-ish. The taste is somewhat old-world — complex with some fruit flavors and structured tannins. This finish is spicy and satisfying. Tom bought this wine for $14 at our local grocery store. Very good; very French!
