Big Red Thursday Wine Tasting and Wednesday’s Cocktails

So, this is a slightly more nebulous wine tasting set for tomorrow. Rather than doing a specific area or varietal, I picked wines that I thought would pair well with the cooler weather. Just as whites and roses are summer wines, big chewy reds are perfect for the fall and winter. And we have found damn good and damn chewy reds. I have included the tasting notes in this message.

Also, the cocktail tasting for tonight is Peach Cosmos, Cucumber Margaritas and Cassis Mojitos. The last vestige of summer playing out in cocktail form. I’d be more wistful if Texas summers didn’t suck so badly.
