Drinking some pretty spiffy cab sav

Alternately titled, Wine Geek In Training

Compared to bordeaux in some tastings, apparently, with big berry fruits and softish tannins with a rich, soft finish without straying too far into jammy, this John Anthony Cali cab sav is delicious. The aroma is amazing. I get a lot of blackberry and cherry or dried cherry nose and flavor, with every other sip revealing its "cedary oak" and cigarbox notes. Though honestly, I just took a sip and got a big whiff of pumpkin bread (on my mind because I just made some before the baggle making last night/this morning).

It's nice having a daughter that works in a fancy-pants wine/tasting store who feels like dropping $60 on a bottle of wine for Mom. (C'mon, how sweet is that?)

In short, today has been a killer day, starting with bagels and mimosas, then sparkling wine (Gruet, from NM - I loved it) , now this cab sav with a turkey just about to come out of the oven (hey, don't judge, I didn't host Thanksgiving and we do prime rib for Christmas so I need sandwiches!).

I've avoided the drama for today, stayed mainly out of the interwebs, but I love you all. That's not just John Anthony talking, either.
