No, really, I can't do that. Too much to do this afternoon.
But, last weekend after several days without snow, we had a bottle of wine to celebrate, again thanks to my friends at the Wine Chateau. This one was a Louis M. Martini 2011 Cabernet. Delish!
Typically, I am not much of a Cabernet drinker, but the reviews of this wine had me totally hooked! And to be fair, I was not disappointed once we opened it. It was not heavy at all, but had flavors of berries and a little green pepper without earthy or licorice flavors. I am not a licorice girl anyway, unless it 's the red one, so that worked really well for me. The finish was smooth and this was a very drinkable wine which means in my world, it's perfect for a Friday night hang out and catch up, which is exactly when we had it!
Thanks again my friends at Wine Chateau-- not sure I would have made it this far through the winter without you.

Thankfully, the people at The Wine Chateau have us parents covered. I received a shipment just after Christmas of three wines. In the spirit of post-holiday recovery, I saved them and did what I could to fit back into my clothes.
And let's just say that I'm glad I did because with a week's worth of snow, I'm gonna need them.
|Happy New Year to Me!|
I've got two bottles to go and two snow storms on the way. So, while I'm not a typically a wine reviewer (book and food, sure, but not usually wine) I'm looking forward to sharing the next two bottles-- The Louis M. Martini and the Cakebread-- with anyone else who's looking to get creative during the never-ending winter.
