Beringer California Collection Cabernet Sauvignon (2006)

beringer-cabernet-sauvignon-2006This Beringer California Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 is Tom’s choice for this Sunday night. We have had a very nice weekend together and this Sunday will top it all off for us.

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!

    Thanksgiving has a way of making us think of the friends and special one’s we miss or can’t be with. At least you had a nice wine to remember them with!
