…a glass of my new go-to cozy red to decompress and end the long day. Gooseneck Vineyards, Malbec, 2011, Mendoza Valley, Argentina. On the nose, aromas of dark berry and spice. On the palette, dry, robust, smooth, fruit forward with hints of dark chocolate deliciousness. Drink now.
Well, I did. I did that a few days ago when this stretch of non-stop work had me coming home to the bottle… I had a glass one day, then another the next, and the next, and the wine stood up wonderfully for those several days. Granted, I always plug unfinished wine with my trusted Vacu Vin wine saver and rubber stopper valve (sucks the oxygen out of the bottle and seals in the wine). But still. But now. Oh horrid sad day… I finished it. Not a single drop left. GONE!!! Well, thank goodness for the internet! And that lovely bottle of Macallan 12 single malt a friend left here. Cheers!
