ICYMI: #EveryGlass WineDown October 2015

Highlighting just how much we actually drink..

My husband dared me to post every glass of wine that I drink, so I aceepted the challenge and started posting #everyglass on Instagram and Vivino, and now, here. So here’s your WineDown!

Anytime Catena and Rothschild get together, I’ll pay attention! The Amancaya Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec blend from Nicholas Catena and Lafite Rothschild (~$28) is a powerhouse of earth, spice and fruit. It is deep and inky with aromas of blackberry, plum, dried herbs, tobacco leaf and earth. Intense flavors of earth, black pepper spice and tobacco and hints of cranberry, plum and berry balance the firm, dry tannins. The finish is long and elegant with touches of eucalyptus and mint. 

Ornellia’s Le Volte (~$30) is richly fruity with subtle notes of spice and Tuscan earth. The palate is soft with silky, elegant tannins and a long finish of spice and rich fruits. An awesomely rich and smooth Tuscan Blend.

The palate is light but smooth with hints of black plum, baking spice and dried herbs. The finish is supple and elegant with bitter but balanced tannins.
