We are getting ready for a trip to Florida tomorrow in which we will celebrate and honor the life of a wonderful, intelligent man, a devoted and honorable husband, a strong and caring father, a loyal brother, a loving grandfather. . .
Tonight as we make our to-do lists and prepare for the trip, we are enjoying this California wine from the Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara County.
The nose is subtle, but with distinct aromas of licorice and spice. The texture is full-bodied and round on the palate with lots of berries. The finish is predominantly coffee and chocolate.
This is a perfect example of why. . .when someone asks for a wine recommendation from me. . .I suggest a California Cabernet. This is exceptionally delicious. I will definitely buy this one again.
Joe, we love you and salute you.
