I didn't finish all of these.

I had the loveliest evening.
Sunday night family dinner!
ERRAZURIZ ESTATE RESERVA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2012
Started off with this one.
Fell in love with the deep red color. So nice.
One word: BALANCED
Fruity and sweet but I can detect a bit of tartness. Like toasted cherries and grapes perhaps. It's a medium-bodied red wine with a good grip. Not-too-striking acidity but it was juicy.
I wish we could've chilled it a little, a bit cooler.
Now my sisters just loved this! They're biased with white wines but I have to agree. This is fantastic!
Just look at it. GORGEOUS.
Right from the start I knew I should expect some citrus and melon but didn't really expect it to be...mineral? Fizzy?
Should have another bottle of this for like a brunch in the garden or something like that...
My, a salad with cheese and caramelised walnuts and ham slices...
TAMI FRAPPATO TIERRA SICILIANE 2012
Oh, the nose.
The only Italian wine for the night. I shall say that kind of red can only be described as seductive. Something that pleasantly surprised me is that it is very lively! A great symphony of fruits and spices! Layer upon layer of cherries and berries made it so fresh and vibrant.
This would go great with meat and even seafood!
P.S. Perfect bottle shape
