I’ve been meaning to drink it every since, but after our initial enthusiasm with drinking wine, we kind of forgot about it.
Tonight I made a nice dinner and decided it was a good time to have some wine. Yes, I had made chicken and a white would have been more appropriate, but I didn’t have any in the fridge and I wanted to open this wine once and for all.
I found it to not be a bad choice at all. The wine is definitely robust, but it didn’t overwhelm the chicken. It has hints of black cherry and is somewhat chalky – the finish is pretty sharp. It’s not an easy to drink wine, but it feels nice in a cold night – it warms you up.
