Prior to knowing what Marisa was preparing I had taken out our antipasti (pickled garlic, peppers, stuffed olives, etc.-beats cheese doodles!) and opened a bottle of...

Chateau Les Favieres Bordeaux 2007

I took a chance on it at about $8 per bottle but always enjoy a Bordeaux which are traditionally more expensive.

Slightly tart with a nice finish. Not disappointing at all. Will definitely purchase in the future. Great value!


The highlight of the evening was cleaning the kitchen with my lovely daughter Caprielle who sang our entire dialogue. I could die right now and be satisfied.

Tonight I had the Argentinian Gason Malbec 2010. Very nice.

Went well with chicken nuggets dipped in Guldens mustard, garlic and parmigiana steam in the bag string beans, and Pillsbury ready bake french bread. Roasted garlic in olive oil appetizer.

For desert, my daughter made some banana cream, followed by a bowl of Stop and Shop imitation Frosted Shredded Wheat to be finished with an after dinner Tums.Sleepy

Rosemount Shiraz 2009.

Though I'm not a huge fan of some Shiraz this one was very good and liked by guests as well.

This has been a long-standing fave in this house: a really consistent winner in the Aussie Shiraz sweeps in a category that sees a lot of movement.

RE: Red Wine Review
During the week, we had a bottle of Maggio Family Vinyards Old Vine Zin, 2008. Not pricey, but very very good. Nice deep flavor, dark cherries and a touch of cocoa in there. I'm gonna have to see if I can find more. Problem is, I have no idea where or when I bought it...

I know. I hate when that happens.Angry

Tried some German Thomas Vindonissa Dornfelder, a sweet red. It reminded me of the Christmas wines I sampled at a festival outside of Vienna, Austria. I liked it

Then we switched over to Bordeaux Merlot-Cabernet 2009 (clever marketing name-fooled me) blend which was dryer, smooth with a sharp tart finish. Tones of oak, walnut and other rugged flavors.

RE: Red Wine Review
There isn't a lot of tasty, well-priced (<$15) California red wine brought into Alberta, but I've recently discovered Apothic Red, which is Bordeaux-like blend.

Supposedly, they also make a white, but I haven't seen it.
