Anata Banderas - a10

Cheers to you Antonio Banderas!  Anta a10 is wonderful.

From the moment I could sniff the wine glass, I was impressed and my only thought was, “please don’t disappoint on the delivery”. Oh what a surprise! The wine delivered and had a long French oak finish. Full of character and flavor. I highly recommend the Anta a10 blend! I still need to try the others.

Vera-Caro-Mio Herman-Story-Bottle-food

Last night’s celebration with my dear friend Vera was an adventure. As we hopped from restaurant to restaurant in search of a perfect place for our bottle, we stumbled across Caro Mio. This Uptown Italian eatery was just right for our bottle of Herman Story – Nuts & Bolts.

This lively Syrah took all of our two hour dinner before it opened up into a splendid chocolate cake covered in elderberries. The wine made a smooth entrance, stayed awhile, and made a graceful and long smoky exit. Loved it!
