Anniversary Celebration

After twelve days of visiting wineries we were ready to head home. Our dilemma, however, was to either remain in New York or travel home on our anniversary. Since the urge to return home was greater we spent the day in the car, often bemoaning the most unpopular phrase in the English language, “Road Work Ahead.” Upon arriving home we were face with how to celebrate. Too tired to fix a meal and not wanting to eat out, when you’re on the road you do a lot of that, we decided to go simple. We bought some fresh fruit and bleu cheese to match with a bottle of Cabernet Franc Icewine. The icewine was from Colio Estate Wines in the Lake Erie North Shore area of Ontario. The strawberry nose and taste of the icewine paired well with the pineapple, peaches and grapes. I enjoyed the icewine with the bleu cheese. The cheese was salty and the icewine cut the salt. The cheese took a bit of the sweet edge off the wine. The icewine had a crisp finish. Although we spent most of the day in the car, the icewine, fruit and cheese was a relaxing and refreshing combination for an anniversary.
