It’s been such a busy week, I almost didn’t write a wine blog this week. But I really wanted to, so my apologies it didn’t come out on Saturday. I hope you enjoy reading the on his holiday Monday. Work has been super busy, my mom is visiting and we’ve been keeping super busy, getting her Christmas shopping done. Plus our Social Committee in my apartment building, which I am the President, kick-started the new year with a Meet & Greet last night.
But it’s my favorite long weekend, Thanksgiving, and I have a lot to be thankful for. I’m thankful for many people and many things, especially the people who take time out of their week to read my wine blog.
So, my Mom is here and she is a Chardonnay drinker.
We got her this one and she loved it. I have to say, I liked it too. It is a full-bodied Chardonnay from Chile. Rich and velvety, with hints of pineapple, citrus and apple. This is priced at just $11.45 here in Nova Scotia, which is a fantastic value.
My friend Cassandra gave me this gift this past week, from Cornect Farms here in Nova Scotia. Savory and sweet with a hint of heat, delicious. And I’ve been trying it on different things, including my BBQ pork chop.
My red wine this week is a Chilen Cabernet Sauvignon
This Espino Cabernet Sauvignon was very tasty. Full-bodied and juicy with notes of dried fruit and coffee, this Cabernet Sauvignon has a splash of Carmenere and Cabernet Franc. it’s priced at $19 a bottle here, which is a spectacular value given the fact it was awarded 94 Points at a competition, along with several gold medals.
Finished this puzzle last week. And heading to Newfoundland next Friday for 2 weeks. I’m flying back with my Mom, and staying at my sister’s for 2 weeks, taking care of Maggie. My sister is in Hawaii for 4 weeks and my Mom doesn’t drive anymore, so someone has to be here.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you had a wonderful long weekend, I know I did. My mom and I didn’t do traditional turkey for Thanksgiving, we did filet mignon steaks. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, I’m very thankful for each and every one of you.
