Time for an update in the Wine Talk department. (Please, feel free to share any good wines that you may have encountered. I’d be happy to post them and your comments!)
In celebrating my birthday recently, our neighbors and good friends, Hugh and Jen, brought two lovely wines over to enjoy:
Let’s start with the Red:
If you like the taste of black cherries and blackberries, this is the wine for you! I personally love the variation of different berries in a Cab. To me, they enrich and deepen its taste. The Bend also leaves a hint of floral on your palette at the end – a lovely touch! This California wine (2015) is by Dario De Conti.
And for the White:
Another lovely flavor in this wonderful Pinot – this time it’s a blend of plum and cherry. So delicious and refreshing! Italian Pinots, like this, from the Veneto or Tuscany area never disappoint.
Both of these lovely wines are available at your local Total Wine and More at very reasonable prices. Thanks to our friends, Hugh and Jen, for sharing such wonderful picks!
While you are sipping and sharing … please … take a moment this week to say a prayer for our friends and family in Florida as Irma sets her sights on our beautiful Sunshine State.
Stay safe, my friends.
