It was a busy day yesterday. So, it was a welcome respite to have dinner with a friend. As an added bonus, he brought a lovely bottle of wine for us to share.
The wine was a 2006 Chappellet Merlot from Napa Valley. It was ruby colored with dark berries, anise and spice on the nose. There were layers of raspberry, cherry, pepper and mocha on the palate. It was full bodied, soft and ended with a long finish. Visit their website to read the Chappellet story. http://www.chappellet.com
I’m off to a “mini” wine tasting.
