Red, Red Wine

Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot

Just had to say a few words about this wine. I don’t speak wine-ese, but I think you’ get the point.

Frontera (Frontier) is one of the labels of Concha y Toro (Shell and Bull) Vineyards of Chile. The bottle pictured is a wonderful blended wine: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot. It has just the right balance of sweetness, acidity, and flavor. It is not too sweet, not too dry, a little fruity and still has a rich full flavor that reminds me of…ummm…wine.

This is a very nice dinner wine. We had this bottle with two different meals—beef and chicken. It complemented both.

When I find that elusive job, I am definitely going back for a few more bottles, maybe a case.

I'll be buying you some wine when that elusive job shows up, believe me.

And I like that wine too, and that says a lot for a wine snob.
