Last night there were eight of us for dinner at our home. Two of our guests, Dennis and Janet, brought a bottle of wine from the Columbia Valley that was outstanding. It's just the style of wine I love. Deep red and inky and displaying very intense flavors. In return, I brought a bottle of Robert Foley "The Griffin" up from the cellar for them to taste. We then uncorked both The Griffin and Casima. Wow! Casima went toe to toe with The Griffin. The bouquet of Casima is peppery. The flavor is dark cherry, blackberry and smoke. The finish is long-lasting. Casima is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 15% Sangiovese. Alcohol is 14.8%.
As of this morning….I'm looking to add this wine to my cellar.
It was a lovely evening with old and new friends sharing fine food and great wines!
