2015 Munjebel CS ft. volcanic rocks from Frank’s Barbabecchi vineyard.
100% Nerello Mascelese from vines planted in the 1920s. CS stands for Chiusa Spagnola, the lowest altitude vineyard of Frank’s Etna bottlings.
This is one of the final remaining bottles Hannah and I lugged back from Sicily, and it’s one we’ve been eager to enjoy for a long while.
When your pool doesn’t allow glass, you have to improvise. While I do enjoy some canned wine from time to time, sometimes bottled wine is needed! This was a gift from my bestie a few years ago, and it really comes in handy. This @corkcicle
bottle holds an entire bottle of wine, keeps it cold and doesn’t leak. It’s amazing!⠀
The wine I poured in it this weekend was a 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir from @duckpondcellars.
This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir had notes of strawberry, raspberry, with a hint of watermelon. It had bright acidity and was refreshing to sip on poolside. ⠀
What are some wine accessories you can’t live without?
Happy weekend friends! I look like the hot mess express, have been running around all week, and my house looks like a tornado swept through; however I’m ignoring it all and relaxing with some steak and Cabernet Sauvignon tonight! ⠀
I don’t know about you, but I can drink full-bodied red all year long! Am I the only one? While I love my Rosé in the summer, I felt like I needed some Cab to go with the grilled filets the hubs made tonight. This 2015 Cabernet from @bvwines
was exactly what I needed! Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!!
On the agenda this weekend::
One of the most common misconceptions I’ve encountered is that all dessert wines are sickly sweet. While there are a number that match this description, in general it is simply not true. A dessert wine should, by design, be the sweetest item on any menu, but explore and experiment to find one that suits you, for instance a Moscato D’Asti, Ruby Port or a Madeira.
