December 2, 2012 – Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards – 2011 Merlot Cabernet and Five Berry Brie.

. December 2, 2012


St. Andrew’s Day marks a special day in which Scotland begins their winter festivities that carry on through the holiday season and here we began our Christmas decorating and shopping.
While not a holiday for us, we took a cue from our friends across the pond to mark the day and share a glass of Cooper’s Hawk wine with friends.20121202

Cheers and warm wishes to Scots and Scots at heart!

We enjoyed Cooper’s Hawk Vineyard 2011 Merlot Cabernet with a five berry brie and sesame crackers. (President’s Choice…just added fresh blueberries and crushed cashews)

Remember this excellent pairing for holiday gatherings!

On the nose, blueberry and raspberry notes, while the palate gets cherry cassis mingles with milk chocolate and rounded French Oak. Sweet candied raspberry echoes through to a persistent mouth watering finish. Pairs well with light meats served with fruit chutneys such as cranberry or on a lighter note, fruit chutney or wine jelly topped with Brie or Camembert with a sesame cracker.

12% alc./vol. 750 ml Red Wine/Product of Canada, Vin Rouge/Produit du Canada
