January 5, 2014 – Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards 2012 Talon with Healthier Meat Lasagna!

. January 5, 2014

Happy New Year!

Wishing you peace, happiness, prosperity, and of course, great Essex County Wine moments!

We started out with Cooper’s Hawk Vineyard’s Talon 2012 Red paired with reduced calorie lasagna!

 

 

 Healthier Meat Lasagna

Transform lasagna with meat sauce from a guilty pleasure into a wholesome meal.

Small swap-ins can make a mighty difference:

Whole-wheat noodles, low-fat cottage cheese, and lean ground sirloin create a light and delicious baked pasta.

A topping of melted mozzarella and Parmesan keeps this dish feeling indulgent.

 

 Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards 2012 Talon Red

Every vintage, being unique, offers a new opportunity to create a balanced wine.

The 2012 flight for Talon consists of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Baco Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Marechal Foch.

This blend will grip your senses with complexity and depth as no single varietal can possibly capture.

Talon represents the art of capturing the perfect blend.

Nose:  Raspberry, Cocoa, Coffee, Cigar Box, Black Licorice, Sandalwood, Cinnamon, Blackberry and Elderflower are some characteristics of this complex blend.

Palate: Blackberry, Cherry Nibs, Dark Chocolate, Nutmeg, Cassis and Leather are a few standard mid-palate flavours. In the finish new flavours evolve with each new time it is experienced. Complex and Interesting.

Pair with: Lamb is the perfect choice but because this wine is a blend of 5 varietals it is extremely versatile and works with just about anything. This wine is perfect for pleasing all palates as a single choice.
