It smelled great and I couldn’t resist reaching in the bag for a quick taste.

Besides, I am a huge fan of meritage; a blend using at a minimum Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc…a typical Bordeaux blend. My gracious host spent some time in the wine business; and as he indicated, I hope and pray he will be my best patron at my wine bar slated to open in May 2010. I hope I don’t miss the Derby…well; there’s no chance of that.
