Marques de Casa Concha (2005)

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!

    So how was the organic beef roast? I just had organic chicken last week in Costa Rica and it was fabulous.

      Honestly, it was the BEST roast I have ever had. I had no idea that it would even be noticeably different but it certainly was . . .very tender, moist and so much flavor. Tell me more about your chicken in Costa Rica!

    In CR to see friends on a trip planned 6-8 months ago and the wife died two weeks before our trip…eight weeks after being told she had cancer…55 years old. Very sad. A neighbor made a complete meal for my buddy and my wife and I and the chicken was soaked in some amazing juices. I didn’t cook it so I can’t tell you what she did. The whole meal was great…had a Chilean Sov Blanc (or two!).
    Costa Rica is fabulous.

      That is quite a story. Wouldn’t it be great to know the juices in which the chicken had soaked? Very sad about your friend’s wife. I would love to experience Costa Rica someday. Thank you for sharing.
