I can’t believe how long it’s been since I blogged, but I have a legit excuse! My laptop is dying a very slow and for me painful death so I bit the bullet and bought a brand new computer I’ve been dreaming about for months. But enough about that for now, I’m here to talk about wine.
A little over a month ago my cousin Todd got married down in Corpus Christi. The rehearsal dinner was at an amazing restaurant called Vietnam Restaurant. At dinner his (now) wife, Lindsey picked out a few different wines. (Side not so glad he married a wino!) I had never tried the 2008 Hess Cabernet, but I fell in love.
Luckily for me, my local grocery store has had it on sale for the last few weeks and it has become the wine I like to keep around the house for whenever I get…thirsty. It has been hovering right around the $15 a bottle mark, a little more than I used to spend on an everyday bottle but this one is worth it.
Usually I blow off the suggestion to let a bottle of wine breath before drinking it, but with this one it really does get better the longer it is open.
Give it a try and like always be sure to let me know what you think!
