The Taste of Wine this Past Weekend

We enjoyed a bottle of wine over the weekend that our daughter Erin’s boyfriend gave to us. It was a Chateau Mio La Foret Bordeaux Superieur 2007. This wine offered ripe dark fruit with a hint of leather on the nose. The wine was full bodied; as it sat in the wineglass it softened and became jammy with dark fruit. The wine had a sweet cherry finish.

This wine is very food friendly. Dinner that night happened to be grilled chicken, potatoes and salad. The wine paired well with the dinner.

What has been your favorite French wine this month?

We also enjoyed the Cab Tennat blend that we bottled in August. The wine kept changing throughout the evening. When first opened it was fruity but as it opened up it offered notes of spice and oak. Over the weekend Erin had a glass of the Cab Tennat and thought it was very good. She also enjoyed the Cab Merlot that we bottled in August at Tin Lizzie Wineworks.

What wine have you enjoyed recently?

Cheers! Kathy
