The Santa Carolina Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2011 from Colchagua Valley, Chile is around this price point and we opened the bottle to give it a try with dinner last night. With the holidays approaching it is nice to have a selection of different wines for parties and to share with friends that wont put a big dent into your holiday shopping budget.

The beauty about living close to the the wine country in Santa Barbara is that we can walk on the beach in the morning and in the afternoon just drive over the hill in 40 minutes to enjoy the rolling hills dotted with majestic oak trees and neat rows of vineyards that reach as far as you can see. The tended rows made us feel like the world is still alright. Our trips up to the Santa Ynez Valley are a jaunt into nature with cows and horses grazing in endless green pastures and hawks flying overhead in the cerulean blue sky.
