My wife’s initial reaction: “Oh, that’s smooth. Very nice.” Thus the stage is set for this excellent Napa Cabernet.Deep, inky purple in the glass. Aromas of blackberry bramble, tobacco, smoke, and spice. On the palate there is blackberry, cassis, pepper, black cherry, and hints of oak. And those tannins – dry, but oh so smooth. It’s hard to believe this is only a 2012. The finish lingers with dark berry and tobacco.Purchased from WTSO.com, $30Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
I am so turkeyed-out! What I need tonight is beef. As luck (and a little planning and foresight) would have it, I have Seared Sirloin with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola on the menu. Paired with a bottle of Sullivan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Calley 2012, it was just what the doctor ordered!

This day-after-the-day-after-Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for beef.
