We are back from our Christmas travels to family in North Carolina where we were snowed in for two days! It was great fun. Tom and I braved the snow and cold to walk 1.5 miles to a gas station to get milk for our nieces, Katie and Emily. A fun and invigorating adventure!
And now here we are in balmy (relatively speaking) Michigan. I have pot roast in the oven and we are enjoying this Monterey, California Chalone Vineyard Syrah 2008 that I purchased at World Market in Ann Arbor. It was priced at 24.99 but it was on sale (natch).
This Syrah has a grapey nose with robust flavors of grass and minerals. We like this one and it is perfect for our pot roast tonight.
A shout out to Bono tonight!
