'08 BR COHN Cabernet and Lamb Chops / Mother's Day

unWine'd with a pour...

‎'08 BR COHN Cabernet (North Coast, Silver Label): $20, This wine is full of dark fruit, most notably black cherry as well as black currant. It was tight and somewhat tannic upon opening but after 45 mins to a hour in the decanter, the wine opened up nicely. This wine is aged in French Oak making it more complex and the tannins in this wine made for a great pairing the full flavor of the Lamb Chops. The wine has a nice finish, maybe a slight hint of vanilla. Cheers to all on Mother's Day...

Lamb Chops:  
I used EVOO, minced garlic, kosher salt, cracked black pepper and a pinch of rosemary for the rub.  I cooked the chops for 4 minutes on each side which produced a nice med-rare.  These chops are very, very tender and the BR COHN was most excellent with them.  

Cheers to all at BR COHN.
