This Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile was our choice for Saturday night (and I am having the last of the bottle tonight — Sunday). I really like this one. Deep red color. A lively blackberry and smoke taste with a silky texture. The tannins are firm and the finish is long. This wine supports my notion that you get what your pay for. . .even in wine, which is a very subjective subject, to say the least. This was a $20 bottle of wine, which — for us — is not our everyday wine. And, it tastes absolutely great to me and worth the price.
We will have this wine with a pot roast dinner which is in the oven (along with apple cobbler). This roast is from a local cow! We purchased 1/16 of a cow and this is our first roast. I just added the potatoes, carrots and pearl onions – and I put the apple cobbler in, too. This cow is grain fed and “organic” (if that is what you call a cow that hasn’t been shot up with any hormones or other additives). . .it’ll be interesting to see if we notice any difference.
And on to another week . . .and spring is in the air in Michigan!
