Chateau La Rose Saint Bonnet Medoc (2009)

This Chateau La Rose Saint Bonnet Medoc 2009 is a luscious French red wine.

Although it probably is more of a steak wine, we had it with our dinner of roast chicken.

In hindsight it was probably too big of wine to have with chicken, but nonetheless i enjoyed it. Lots of ripe berries, oak and spice with a touch of tobacco on the finish.

For dinner, we had a roast chicken, cole slaw (if anyone wants my super-delicious, easy recipe, let me know; it’s tangy, crunchy and delicious), and angel hair pasta tossed with olive oil.

Sterling Vintner’s Collection Meritage (2007)

It’s Monday night and very dark. . .we have our Christmas tree lights on and the house is cozy. Trigger is snuggling with me and we are reading the newspaper. Tom poured me a glass of this California blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The nose is a rich black cherry and a bouquet of roses. The taste is delicious. . .chocolate, raspberries and pepper. The tannins are just right: Firm but mellowing as the wine breathes.

For dinner, I prepared a casserole. . .but I wrapped it in foil and put it in the refrigerator for another night (I have a busy week ahead). For tonight. we are going to have leftover steak & broccoli stir fry with brown rice and the most delicious cole slaw. (Although this cole slaw recipe is very simple, it is the best I have ever had.) Want the rec ipe? Just let me know!

I am enjoying this glass of wine very much. I would not hesitate to buy this again (it was on sale for $8.99).
