Last Nights Wine
Tonight we (and 7 of our friends) took our friend out for her birthday for Tapas at Europa in downtown Richmond. Dinner was excellent as usual and so was the service (try and make sure you waiter is Slate), he is awesome especially with large groups. Twice now we have gone with 10 people and he didn't skip a beat.
So on to the food and wine....We were in the mood for a Cab Sauv so we chose the 2003 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon. We have had it before so we new it was a good wine, and it was fairly inexpensive ($30).
nose: blackberry, cassis, tobacco
taste: chocolate, blackberry, black cherry
mouthfeel: smooth silky tannins
Overall this wine is great, and retail it is only $13.00 so it makes a nice "everyday drinker" (A-)
