In keeping with my New Year’s resolution (the only one I can keep) I opened another bottle of wine. I am so proud of myself, I finally found the perfect resolution, and one that I can make year after year and succeed. Drink more wine. So simple, I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. Now I can call myself a huge success story.
Last night I fixed London broil for dinner and opened a bottle of Josh Cellars, Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013. This wine is from the North Coast Region in California. You can find Josh Cellars at http://www.joshcellars.com and almost everywhere you buy wine. I have tasted many bottles of Josh wines and varietals, and I can say that I have never had a bad bottle of wine from Josh Cellars.
This was the first time I had tasted the Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and was very pleased with this wine. The wine was a dark red color in the glass and when I swirled it around, the wine had great legs running down the side of the glass. It smelled like plums and alcohol and had a 14.5% alcohol content. The wine was dry and smooth almost soft and not at all harsh. I could taste blackberries and a hint of vanilla when I swished the wine around before I swallowed the wine. The slipped down my throat without a hint of harshness and had a long full finish. Very nice. The price was also very nice, I paid under $20 for a bottle. That is a bargain for a nice easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine complemented the London broil very nicely, forcing me to drink not two but three glasses of wine. Good thing I only had to walk across the room.
This is definitely a bottle I will buy again.
