So if you haven't noticed we've had a recent increase in posting. This is not due to a surplus of cooking going on in the Stout house but rather a lack of posting. Due to our busy schedules and me changing jobs we've really fallen behind in posting. I've yet to count what's on my camera cards but I know there are at least 20 edited food and drink items in my "To-Post" folder on my desktop. So I've made a pact to get through this back-log of goodies and get back to the current reviews.
Starting with this great vino that's no old-news around our house. Jessi and I really enjoy wine but are pretty cheap when it comes time to selecting good bottles. Not too far out of college and still much bigger beer fans than wine, it's often hard for us to justify a bottle priced over the cost of some of our favorite six packs. Boomtown from Dusted Valley vineyards are really on to something here. The vineyard is based in Wala Wala, Washington and Boomtown Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 has a great flavor with hints of black plum and blackcurrant followed by some dry tannins. Priced at around $15-$20 this bottle is priced high for us cheapies, but is well worth it. We really enjoy the Boomtown cab and hope you'll will get a chance to as well. Cheers!
