Today, I’m mixing it up a little and discussing a recent purchase of one of my favorite things . . . Wine. And since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I think it’s only appropriate.
I’ll admit it, I bought it for the pink ribbon. I’ve had my mom and two close friends go through breast cancer, and when I see that ribbon, it often encourages me to support the cause. Cashmere California 2011, Cline, was an impulse buy. But not one I regret.
As printed on the label: The word Cashmere instantly brings to mind visions of luxurious warmth, cozy comfort, and decadent elegance. Cline’s Cashmere is a lusciously bodied blend with easy, earthy undertones, flavors of cherries, raspberries, chocolate and hints of plums leading to a smooth long finish. Cline Cellars proudly supports Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Visit www.clinecellars.com/lbbc to learn more about our commitment.
I found the wine to be very smooth and enjoyable—a wine that is great to sip alone or with a meal. At a bargain of $14.99, it was well worth the price, and knowing I helped the cause just a tiny bit, it was definitely a feel good wine and one that I would buy again.
Have any of you battled the Big C, or loved anyone who has? I offer you my support. And, today, I’ll be giving away another set of Shadow Falls wine glasses to one lucky commenter as well, so be sure you leave a comment.
