What I’m Drinking Tonight

So Friday I started out with the decent Portuguese wine below, but as it took me a little longer than I had reckoned to get the burgers ready I had to open another bottle.
I hate that.
Anyhow, in keeping with our “Bing is a cheap bastard” theme I found this Australian Madison Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 for $7

Now, a quick glance at the calendar tell you that we’re only 3 months into 2008, and even granting our dear friends Down Under the benefit of their seasons being bass-ackwards from ours this wine is at best, what, 6-7 months old at most? So I wasn’t expecting much.
I was very pleasantly surprised. For $7 this beats the pants off of many $15 wines I’ve had. It has some nice tannins and good cabernet flavor, with some hints of leather at the end (just the way Ken likes it). I’ll definitely pick up a few more bottles just to confirm this experiment…this could be a very good buy.
Oh, and those cheeseburgers you see in the background were very yum.

    You’re starting to worry me…
    I mean, if you’re going to kill me, at least spend some money for the good stuff.
    Oh, Your Colon says, “thanks a lot for all that grease from those cheeseburgers. Would it kill you to eat a little more fiber? You don’t want me to start passing this now do you?”

    Dear Liver,
    Someday you will make fine foie gras.

    I haven’t had red wine in a long time… wrote this one down for next time. 🙂

    I must not be drinking enough. My liver _never_ talks to me.

    Nina, Nina, Nina, we have to correct this problem! A little red wine nearly every day is good for you. It makes the paper grading much more enjoyable. 🙂
