A quick note before New Years

Wow, as usual the holidays are flying by. How does it happen? Not sure, but it seems as though it never matters how many days you take off around the holidays that in the blink of an eye it is time to go back to work. Well, I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I did mine. Next up in a few more days is New Years Eve. We are staying home with guests and are currently working our menu as well as our wine selection. In the process of selecting some wines for that evening we picked up a wine we had never tried before. As a fan of blends, I spotted a Lion’s Ridge Vineyards Meritage Red Wine, 2004 Central Coast. A very reasonably priced wine that I picked up for $19.99 that is produced by Clos LaChance Winery in San Martin, California. The fact that it was produced by Clos LaChance further intrigued me as I am a fan of thier everyday drinkers. It should also be noted Clos LaChance produces some higher end wines as well, I just have not tried any so I am unable comment on them (note to self, I need to try one of them soon). In any case, I tried the Lion’s Ridge Meritage tonight that is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but is a blend of all five Bordeaux varietals and really enjoyed it. If you can find this blend I recommend you pick up a bottle, it is an easy drinking, very smooth, enjoyable wine.

Just wanted to drop our readers a quick note about this new find and to wish everyone a Happy, Healthy, Properous, wine drinking, New Year! Happy 2009!
