Wine & Men

Yesterday I received my shipment of wine from Burrowing Owl Winery.  This vineyard in the Okanogan Valley in British Columbia makes spectacular wine.  I received a shipment of the 2009 Merlot and I have a case of their Cabernet Sauvignon on the way.  Well, when I received my wine, I couldn’t wait to share it with my friends Rick and Sue.  One of the comments I made was that the wine would be great with any grilled food on the BBQ, to which Rick said ‘especially one with a good rub!”  The comments started flying about good rubs and the next thing we knew we were comparing good wine with good men.   Most of the comments I can’t publish, but it did get me to thinking.

This wine is spectacular, from start to finish.   In the glass it is a dark plum color and on the nose layers of aromas.   Plums, leather and tobacco on the nose and in the mouth this is a full-bodied Merlot.   Flavors of red berry, tobacco and chocolate explode in the mouth.  There was another flavor myself and Rick were picking up and we think it was Eucalyptus.  I recently reviewed the wine and gave it a 95.  This dark mysterious classy wine – makes me think of James Bond.

Moving along.   I have been having so much fun with white wines lately, and Rick and Sue at the NSLC on Larry Uteck Boulevard here in Halifax, introduced me to a fantastic one….. a Fume Blanc

This wine is 94% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Semillion.  Dry and crisp, I loved this wine.   mouth-watering flavors lemon and lime, honeydew and lemongrass.   This is a great wine and with Summer just around the corner, hopefully, this wine with its tropical flavors and citrus has Summer written all over it.   Hmmm, trying to think of a man who makes my mouth water like this wine.   Easy!

If you think of any wines that make you think of a fine man, let me know.  I would love to write about it.  We can have fun with this one.

Till next week, Cheers.  Darlene
