Daily Inspiration from My Mom

This is a display my mom did in my parent's new house. She used nature as an inspiration, and got a lot of the pieces for it from the woods surrounding their house.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Here are some great holiday cabernets from Food and Wine magazine!

Under $20: Value Cabernet Bottles for Big Holiday Parties
2007 L de Lyeth Cabernet Sauvignon ($13) This Sonoma producer's bottling is more elegant than most reds at the same price.
2007 Fineline ($14) The Paso Robles region's warm climate makes this Cabernet especially juicy.
2007 Josh Cellars ($15) A vineyard in the up-and-coming Red Hills AVA provides the grapes for this rich red.

$20-$50: Best Cabernet Wines for Special Holiday Dinners
2007 Sequoia Grove Napa Valley ($38) A complete winery revamp has distinctly improved the quality of this longtime producer's wines.
2007 Frog's Leap Napa Valley ($42) Black currant fruit and the dusty note typical of the Rutherford Bench define this impressive wine.
2007 Selene Dead Fred Vineyard ($50) Winemaker Mia Klein's superb, structured red comes from a vineyard named after the owners' beloved cat.
