wine: Beringer 2006 St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon
This bottle of wine has been sitting in our wine frig for a few years. We've been giving it a quarter turn every month as we do with all of our wine just dying for the "special" day that we can open this and enjoy it. We've passed up on other occasions like "We just got a puppy" day or "It's a Tuesday!" or "Mike just got into an MBA program!" None of those seemed quite right for that special day to enjoy this bottle. When, oh, when would we finally open this?!?
[ENTER] Our 5th Wedding Anniversary! Yahoo! A perfect opportunity to open this bottle. We brought this bottle with us to the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, where we were staying for our anniversary. We enjoyed it in the Ritz Carlton's wine glasses, which were a bit smaller than normal wine glass size. Can I just tell you that the wine glasses were a bit smaller than normal size Cabernet glasses so it was like we got to enjoy this bottle for twice as long. Score! I am pretty sure that if could taste heaven, heaven would taste like 2006 Beringer Single Vineyard St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon. It was delicious. So smooth, so good, and yet again, I did not take any specific notes, so you are just going to have to believe me that heaven-in-wine-form tastes delightful.
