Elsa Bianchi Cabernet Sauvignon (2007)

Elsa Bianchi Cabernet Sauvignon 2007This lovely Argentinian Elsa Bianchi Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 was included in one of our wine club shipments. I have been saving it because I had a feeling it was going to be a wine we would very much enjoy.

Well, I was right, natch. It is a delicious cabernet. The nose is pine trees and blackberries. In the mouth it is full bodied and bursting with black fruit and structured tannins. The finish is moderately long and quite lovely.

Tonight I mixed up a meatloaf (ground beef, ground pork, oatmeal, eggs, onions, tomato juice, spices) and put that in the oven. Because I had the oven on, I also cut up an acorn squash. Also, my neighbor Michelle, who belongs to a food co-op, brought over Swiss Chard and two large beets. So I washed the beets and they are roasting in the oven with the meatloaf and squash. When the beets are roasted, I will remove the skin and dice. I will steam the Swiss Chard. This should be a delicious dinner by the smells in the kitchen.

Tom: This is a great wine with a powerful, chocolaty nose and a very nice tannic taste of berries with hints of vanilla. Very nice, very interesting.

    Hi Tom and Melody- I hope all is well. This wine sounds delicious! I immediately noticed that it was Australian…which makes me think of all the opportunities I will have to go wine tasting while over there! I will make sure to write on your blog 🙂

    Hi Leena! That’s right — I hadn’t even considered all the wine-tasting opportunities you will soon have! It’ll be wonderful to hear all about your adventures into wine tasting!
    We miss you and hope to see you when you are back in Michigan.

    Hi Kathi, Yes, it is Argentinian. Leena, who commented, had Australia on her mind because she is studying there at this time. 🙂 But you are absolutely correct. Do you like the wine?
