Me & My Wine (part 2)

This is what my dream basement looks like!  My actual basement looks quite a bit different than this.   There is a wine rack in it, but sadly it is empty. LOL

I do, however, have 2 wine racks upstairs and that’s what I started writing about last weekend.  What’s in my wine rack.

 

Clos De Los Siete 2008, Mendoza Bottle

Had this one given to me yesterday as a gift.  Have I told you I have wonderful friends.  This is a great treat wine, and I am waiting to open it with friends.  Good friends always make a wine taste better.  Nice ruby-red colors, a hint of spice, choclatey plum flavors.  This Argentinian wine has never disappointed and I am looking forward

Rolf Binder Wines - Halcyon Cabernet Merlot 2008

I actually havent’ had this wine yet.  It was given to me as a Christmas gift, and its a 2008 Rolf Binder Halcyon Cabernet Merlot.  If anyone has tried it, I would love to hear from you.

Yes, I actually do own a bottle of wine that looks like this.  It’s the La Fiole Chateaunneuf du Pape.   This Chateaunneuf du Pape is light, flavorful, has been trashed in some reviews, given 94 out of 100 in other reviews.  I love the bottle, it’s a real conversation piece.  It looks like buried treasure.  Keep in mind it’s a non-vintage wine which means the grapes have come from several different years.  I like it.

Now I have a quick question before I go.  What kind of wine would you buy if you were given a gift certificate to the wine store?  Actually 2 gift certificates!  Please, send me your comments.  I have a wonderful opportunity to buy a bottle of ‘treat’ wine, and would love to hear from you.
