I am finishing the bottle of Sainte-Croix Syrah-Merlot 2006 tonight. Tom is finishing a bottle of Il Valore Sangiovese 2006. I have a pot of long-grain brown rice simmering in chicken broth and I have chicken breasts marinating in vermouth, orange juice, and szechuan sauce. I’ll also make a salad and steam some broccoli for dinner.
Ahh, it is Friday night after a very demanding week. We are reading the paper and enjoying this relaxing end to the week. I really do like this wine very much. It is dry and tannic and light-to-medium bodied. There is just nothing off-putting about this wine. It is good from start to finish and I am definitely purchasing this one again. This is a great wine for Labor Day picnics! Pick up a bottle. . .
