An Elegant Survival Wine: Panilonco Cabernet 2011

I love it when our dinner guests bring, as gifts, bottles of wine that are new to us. It is a fantastic way to taste a wine, because it is a recommendation from someone you are fond of, and having the bottle right there to drink with them constitutes instant gratification. This cabernet by Panilonco of Chile was smooth and excellent–here is the apt description from Trader Joe’s website: “Its deep red hue reveals ripe red berries, blackberries, plums and black pepper on the palate. The mouth feel is full and supple, with velvety tannins and a long, round aftertaste.” Panilonco Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 is available at Trader Joe’s for about five USD.Click Here to Read M-J’s Main Website, Elegant Survival
