The Cornerstone of a Tasty Meal 1.4

December 8, 2012

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…

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

Very nice!

Stay Rad,
