The Cornerstone of a Tasty Meal 1.4

Today, I had this hankering for Filet Mignon…

So I bought me some…


And wrapped it in bacon!

I had another sample from Cornerstone Cellars, so I decided to break it out…

Color: Dark ruby-red to black.

Nose: Blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry fruit with a hint of leather, spice, menthol, and tomato skin.

Taste: Up front, there is this beautiful dark fruit component with a pop of red fruit.  Think of blackberry and plum with a blast of cranberry.  There are these awesome, velvety tannins that round this wine out beautifully.

Score: Fantastic!  It’s not often that I refer to a $65 bottle of wine as a steal, but this wine can go toe-to-toe with the best of them.  93 points.

Back to the meal…


Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon with Blue Cheese and a Big Ass Baked Potato

The juiciness of the filet mignon amps up the black and blue fruit in the wine.

Very nice!

Stay Rad,
