    Before I get into all the specifics of tonight's wine, I should mention I have a little cold. Not bad (or I wouldn't waste the wine), but it might make things taste differently than they should. The color, not at all skewed by my cold is a nice straw yellow, so I'm not expecting it to be too bland - it's not terribly pale. On the nose, I am getting some light fruit, green apple maybe. After my initial swirl, I do get a light floral note, still heavier on the apple. A quick taste before we eat (I do enjoy a little wine while I cook, part of the enjoyment of cooking), Mmmmmm... Not bland, but somewhat acidic. This is all good, though - the saltiness of the prosciutto, the parmesan (side note - I do grate my parm fresh rather than the recipe suggested pre-shredded) as well as the cheese tortellini ~ the acidity in the wine does a fabulous job of bringing this altogether into an enjoyable food & wine pairing. Or, as I like to call it a Party in the Mouth.

    Beautiful purple-red that's just light enough to see through. Stick your nose in it and there's this wonderful cherry, very light tobacco (which is a descriptive I hate to use,because it doesn't sound good to me) and a hint of chocolate (or maybe I just want to smell that). Now taste... Very vibrant, sexy, yes sexy, red wine. Now, I don't taste the tobacco but the rest of what was on the nose is in the mouth. I also now realize I have a mosquito coil burning... Is that where the tobacco was coming from? Could be.

    Tonight we enjoyed the Todd Lauren Pinot Noir with our Penne Vodka. I found my wine rack this evening to be fairly empty.... Not cool. Text to husband - please go to Stew's and get a bottle of wine for dinner!! Response - any specific request? To Husband - Pinot. He was torn between this bottle or a Burgundy, and went with this. I think either would do ;) But this is what I have, so this is what I'll write about. Let's begin! So, start with a look... Such a beautiful ruby red you can see right through. Light to medium body, legs seem to run right down your glass. Stick your nose in it... you get ripe cherries. Swirl around a bit, and it adds some leather, in a good way. And, to taste... It's a nice cherry on the tongue mixed with a delightful earthiness. It's somewhat acidic. Truely, a perfect balance. And, it went great with dinner!

    Looking at my sparse wine rack for a red to go with our steak tonight. This has been there awhile ~ honestly because I've never had one so I don't know what to expect. And, the top on the bottle is neither cork nor screw cap. I don't know what it's called, but it's more like a beer bottle cap. I never judge a wine by it's top anyway, so this part doesn't bother me. We open it up. It smells a little bit smoky, some cherry. Really just makes me want to taste it, it smelled so inviting. So, I taste ~ so good, OMG. It's an incredibly smooth easy-drinker. A little sour cherry, slightly acidic. Do I get mint at the end? Not quite, but it's leaning toward it. So, it's an Austrian wine, but I'm thinking it would pair nicely with Italian food. I'm sure it'll go great with my steak dinner tonight. Looking forward to it!

    Paired this wine with wienerschnitzel and spaetzle. Really enjoyable wine with that dinner. Delicious on it's own (when we finished it after dinner). Had a slight effervescence to it. Very crisp and delicious.
