Tonight, I opened my first bottle of claret in a what seems like ages. My goodness, it feels like I havn't drank wine in so long. I sat there cupping the glass and sniffed...just sniffed. A beautiful, complex wine, which I'll write about tomorrow. I left most of the bottle intact, for dinner Saturday.
I'll decant the wine, which should really open it up and put some weight on it. Will be cooking a big meal tomorrow - think chicken, lamb, fresh greens, pan-seared fish. I'll write about the meal tomorrow, and how well the wine matches up.
