Santa Ema, Cabernet, 2005
The other day, for only the second time ever, I ordered a case of wine.
Santa Ema, Cabernet. Reserve.
A Chilean red.
Experts have their own words for it, but to me it's mouthy, full, ready and THERE for any red meat or spicy red sauce you can throw at it -- even jalapenos.
It has heft, but lifts off a little at the finish.
Damn. Good. Wine.
Tried some at a tasting in Houston. Bought two bottles there. Had to have a case.
