Stone Cellars by Beringer Cabernet Shiraz (2008)

It is a Tuesday night and we are in shorts and t-shirts, but it is getting dark and chilly at 8:15 p.m. Fall has arrived and changing from our work clothes to shorts isn’t going to change that . . . however, here we are, acting like it is still summer.

I chose this Stone Cellars by Beringer California Cabernet Shiraz 2008 for our midweek cocktail hour. It is a good value at around $5 a bottle on sale. It is fruit-forward wine that is just perfect for a Tuesday night. It isn’t complex and it isn’t begging for a special occasion. It is just easy to drink and enjoy. My brother in law would say “it drinks good.”

I am reheating a leftover chicken and rice casserole and I am sauteing asparagus. I also have some leftover whole wheat baguette. It should be a satisfying dinner

I took a picture of the wine in front of the Wall Street Journal and Trigger. . . A pretty good depiction of tonight.
