I ordered Chinese take-out, I had SNL on the TV, life was good. It was even BETTER because I had Broc Cabernet Franc in my glass. I loved the 2011 vintage and am even more in love with 2012. This is the kind of Cabernet I’m into- not too green and peppery, but fresh and fruity (and whole cluster.) Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all fruit loops and smiley faces. It has some depth and earth. It’s a great little wine and I basically drank an entire bottle by myself. What else do I need to say, people? Seek it out and hoard it.
There are some other things in this photo I’m loving. I picked up a few of these white porcelain bottle coasters. Super cheap, chic, and functional. And those glasses? My new favorite weeknight drinking vessel. They remind me wine doesn’t always have to be so precious. I’m eating cashew chicken and watching Stefon talk about Halloween, after all.
