Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

The Other ~ Wine Review

I have to admit, I have the Bestest Friends EVER.

A long time friend, and companion in wine sharing, sent me a delightful box of goodies for my birthday.

It looked like this...

Chocolate and wine.  You should be jealous.  Dark Chocolate. and Wine.  Very Jealous.

The wine was one she picked up when her "go to" wine was not available.  She likes to shop by label... as do I.  No wonder we've been friends since 7th grade.

The wine is deep plum in color.

When first opened and poured, it was very fruity (think grapes and dark berries) on the nose, after 5 minutes, spice and oak took over.

The palate is deep.  Cherry, oak and green pepper immediately come to mind.  It's warm and smooth with a bold flavor and long, lingering finish.  Wishing I had a Medium Rare New York Strip to pair with this.  It definitely goes well with the dark chocolate covered pretzels that accompanied it.

A Red Blend of 50% Cabernet, 40% Merlot and 10% Syrah, and a really cool label...

                                                     This is the Perfect Valentine's Treat.
