2 BOTTLES FOR THE LONG WEEKEND
yum. i cannot wait to dip into these two new bike wines this weekend.
the weather is suppose to be beautiful, and i'll be parched from digging up my lawn all weekend.
cono sur organic cabsav, 2008 and hill of content shiraz, 2005.
ok, so the hill of content shiraz 2005 was the first one we drank.
it was incredible smooth with very prominent fruity flavours and a medium tannin - super good. i would recommend it as a summer wine for sure. our bottle was a little chilled (15c) and it was nice like that. definitely recommended.
next up was the cono sur organic cabsav 2008.
i have enjoyed a few bottles of this fine example of chilean perfection before and this particular bottle did not disappoint. yummy yummy yummy - classic cabsav, no surprises, went perfectly with bbq'd burgers and grilled sweet potatoes. highly recommended.
