Tom brought home this large bottle (1.5 L) of Cabernet from the grocery store one night when he was concerned we were running low on mid-week wines. We are having it tonight (Thursday) after a demanding day at work and teaching a night class. In fact, Tom just left to pick up a pizza because it has been a long day and we want to curl up and watch the vice-president debates without me having to cook. (By the way, it is definitely becoming snuggle weather in Michigan; feels cold and damp tonight.)
This wine is a decent mid-week quaff. There is a good deal of vanilla and fruit on the palate. The tannins are sluggish. All in all, a good choice for a pizza and debate evening on a cold Michigan evening.
