Dinner at Tio Pablo!

My husband and I both agreed a little fine tequila and tacos sounded mighty good!

Drink Something

Vinaceous Raconteur Cabernet Sauvignon

I love a rich, bold red!  Lately, the Cabernet Sauvignon is my wine of choice.  I stumbled upon my new obsession at a local quick mart on Hugenot Road, of all places.  The Raconteur Cabernet Sauvignon from the South Australia company called Vinaceous is simply a delight to pair with a meal or a snack.

I am in no way a true connoisseur of wines, although I would trade my day job for a chance to work as a sommelier.   I do, however, know what I like in a wine.  In a red I really enjoy a bit of sweet in the tannin bite that this cabernet delivers.  Paired with a medium rare strip steak just off the grill and you have before you a meal that will know your socks off!
