Snow and Shiraz

This weekend, we skiing at Tahoe. It snowed all day yesterday, and after half a day of ski and some snowshoeing, I was pretty wet and ready for a full, hearty wine.

At the local Safeway, I found a bottle of 2003 Cape Mentelle Shiraz Margaret River that looked promising.

Cape Mentelle is one of the first winery established in the Margaret River region of Southwest Australia. Located within three to seven kilometers off the Indian Ocean coast, the Cape Mentelle vineyards enjoy a maritime influenced Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm summers. The wine had a deep red color with a nose of ripe fruits and spices. On the palate, it was rich and smooth with sweet flavors. This is a wine that keeps you wonderfully warm and cozy while it is all white and snowy outside.
