This Chilean Tormenta Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine made using totally organic wine-making techniques and grapes. Tom and I are pretty much oohing and ahhing over it. In the glass, it is dark purple with good legs. The nose is a bit minty and the palate is soft with blackberries and olives. The finish is woody and smokey. This is far too good a wine for a Thursday night, but, oops, I already opened it so we might as well enjoy it!
I have a “what do I have in the refrigerator?” dinner on the stove tonight. I’m not proud of it, but it will suffice. I started with a hot cast-iron skillet and browned chunks of smoked, polish kielbasa, then added unpeeled, diced, potatoes. Then, I added chicken broth and let that simmer awhile. Once the potatoes were tender, I added a small bag of saurkraut and a bag of frozen green beans. That is all simmering now and will turn out to be an okay dinner for a night in which I am running low on groceries. The wine does make it rather special, though! Cheers!
