“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.” — John Burroughs
In these tough economic times, simple pleasures reign. The Roth Estate Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 isn’t a simple wine, but a delicious multidimensional cabernet at a price-point that belies the quality in the bottle. This is a perfect bottle to open for those winter days that you just want to curl up on the couch in front of a roaring fire.
For simple times, a rustic beef stew pairs beautifully with cabinet sauvignon. For the turntable? The music match is “A Simple Twist of Fate” a classic Bob Dylan tune covered by the brilliant Bryan Ferry from the album Dylanesque.
