There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day lately. Just when I think that my proverbial “to do” list is getting smaller, more items mysteriously appear on it. I need a vacation!!
After a crazy and non-stop day yesterday, it was nice to mellow out over dinner with a friend. Although the wine we drank is not worth mentioning, the conversation more than sated my thirst.
However, I do want to mention a wine that I tasted the other evening. It was a 2011 Catena Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina. Made from 100% Malbec grapes, it was the color of dark amethysts. The aromas of ripe fruits, plums, hints of vanilla and cocoa were heavenly. Flavors of blackberries, plum, spice and a tease of cinnamon burst onto the palate. Smooth tannins and a velvety long finish made this wine a winner! The winery has a great history. Check it out at: http://www.catenawines.com
Have a great Wednesday!
