You know we’d pretty much live in a wine cellar if we could get away with it, and we’ve loved sipping through some of the nicer bottles we were gifted this Christmas (Thanks Reader Isa!). However, as we’ve discussed, you can’t always get what you want, sometimes, you get what you need (yes, emum, $10 bottles on wine belong on the list of what you need. No emails.)
Our two favs right now? Penfold’s Cabs and Alamos Malbecs. Descriptions:
Penfold’s Cab Sav: ”The wines are affordable, everyday, easy-drinking wine and is a classic Australian marriage of fruit power and structure. The Cabernet Sauvignon offers opulent dark berry flavous with a moderately firm structure and rich finish. ”
Alamos Malbec: ”Alamos Malbec presents a dark purple color with violet highlights. The nose offers bright black cherry aromas with light floral notes and a touch of toast. The mouthfeel is full and rich, with ripe, concentrated cassis and black raspberry fruit flavors interwoven with a touch of chocolate and sweet spice from light oak aging.”
Any more suggestions from the peanut gallery? We always love an excuse to taste test!
