Friday August 23. Today we celebrate with wine and cake. A 2015 Reserva #Malbec Blend. 80% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Franc from Tupungato a high altitude region of #Mendoza, #Argentina.At $17 a bottle and moderately intense, it is well balanced with a rich finish. USCITA means exit in Italian. Aged 12 months in new French oak barrels you taste berries, plum, tobacco and chocolate. All my favorites in this violet hued deep red wine. It is elegant but crisp. There are savory overtones, red licorice kisses, delicious.
The cake in the photo is a small Birthday cake in memory of my son Chris on his Birthday. On the bottle of wine this is written:
Life is short.
Break the rules.
Sure says it all! Please join our celebration today with eating a piece of cake, whatever flavor you like. Ours is half chocolate, half vanilla 🍰 Happy weekend wishes everyone!
