Monday was another jam-packed day. So I was looking forward to having a quick drink with a friend and then veg’ing for the rest of the evening. However, the quick drink turned into dinner and a bottle of wine. And, I’m happy that it did, because the wine was fantastic!
We drank a 2005 Château La Vieille Cure. This Red Bordeaux blend was an intense purple color. It had more earth than fruit on the nose. Dark cherry, spice and rich loam filled the palate. Over the course of two hours, the wine continued to open with flavors of licorice, dark berries and a hint of cocoa. Dark cherry and chocolate lingered in my mouth for a long finish. This full-bodied wine was good to the last drop!
I must get back to work now!
