Alambrado Gran Seleccion Cabernet Sauvignon (2010)

It is Tuesday before Thanksgiving and I took the day off from work to do some pre-Thanksgiving cooking. It was a fun day for me. I also went for a run but waited too long to go, so when I finally got out there is was pouring rain and about 40- degrees and windy. The hot shower when I was done was my reward.

For dinner, I needed to use some fresh mushrooms from my food co-op . . .and, some beef that had been in the freezer for awhile, so I put together a beef stroganoff. Rich and delicious flavor. The wine I chose for our dinner is excellent. This Argentinian red is bursting with fruit, chocolate and oak with very smooth tannins. Luscious. We love it. Cheers!

Alambrado Malbec (2008)

It is the middle of the work week and we both have been working hard at our jobs. I worked even later than usual tonight and my drive home was so dark. It’s that time of the year when I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark.

So, for dinner tonight, I am making a very plain, but comforting, meal of goulash and green beans. I will also serve sliced, fresh pineapple as a side.

For our wine tonight, we are having this wonderful Argentinian Malbec. It is delicious. The nose is a mix of fresh pine and cloves. The taste is in-your-face plums and the finish is strong licorice. We are enjoying this wine very much. Our dog, Trigger, is cuddled on the chair next to me. She has noticed the change in the weather and wants to be next to me any time I am home. . .it is so nice!
