It is Tuesday night and we have had such a fun cocktail hour. I had a lot of news to share from my work day (and Tom is a wonderful listener) and Trigger just soaks it all up — happy to be part of the group.
So, we started with an icy-cold martini (up) and have graduated to a glass of this The Wisdom Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 from the Alexander Valley in California. This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and aged in American Oak.
The result is big-tasting red wine. The predominant aroma and flavor is vanilla followed by dark fruit and buttery toast.
For dinner, I am reheating some leftover chicken which I will serve with some freshly baked potatoes and a salad. Tom offered to get pizza tonight (because I had a big day) but this dinner sounded tastier and is also very easy to prepare. Cheers!
Tom: Nice dark fruit, medium/big body, dry and tannic, with a bit vanilla/caramel. Very drinkable. A very fun cocktail hour…
