Shhh… Don’t tell Jon…. He’s at class tonight for his weekly marathon evening of class. 6 – 9:30. Ugh – I remember when I was in school. But that’s not the secret.
I’m supposed to be folding laundry. But instead I’m watching Antiques Roadshow and drinking a glass of 2006 Matthews Estate Claret. I had a long day at work, went to get gas and to the grocery store, and then made dinner. I didn’t get home until 7 tonight, so I’m going to relax a little bit.
This wine is mostly sold out, but we found a couple bottles the last time we were at Costco. The Claret is a Bordeaux blend, but the winery doesn’t advertise what the blend is. For a red, it is lightly oaked, with a rich taste of blackberry and espresso (or is that tobacco?) According to their website, it is both. Whatever it is, it is delicious, with excellent balance and structure.
