This California wine has a lovely, flowery nose. The taste has a strong vanilla flavor on the front and a blackberry on the finish. The tannins are soft and smooth.
Confession time: I just didn’t want to grocery shop this weekend. I put it off and put it off. So I rummaged through our little freezer and pulled out two very thick pork shops. I browned those and now they are simmering in the skillet in chicken broth along with peeled, cubed potatoes. I will thicken the sauce after the pork chops are fork tender and I’ll make a vegetable and call it good. I will probably end up going to the grocery store Tuesday night after work and getting everything I need for Thanksgiving.
This will be my first Thanksgiving in 23 years without Tony. Tony is in Paju, South Korea, working as a teacher. I miss him terribly and I can’t imagine sitting at our Thanksgiving meal without him!
