We were both quite hungry…one can build up an appetite watching soccer players run around a field nonstop for several hours! We pulled together a rather impressive meal considering there was not much food in the house. The dinner seemed worthy of one of my “older “ wines.
I pulled out a 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon from The Hess Collection. Considering it’s age, all I can say is WOW. The cork came out with ease and we poured a deep ruby wine into our glasses. The wine had an incredible softness about it with a pleasant bouquet. I tasted tart cherry and slate, while my friend tasted berries and pomegranate. The longer we let it open, more flavors started to emerge, including licorice and a sweeter berry.
