Christmas Visit to Reading Station and Blue Mountain Tasting Room

So for the holidays, Dom and I decided to take the boys to Camden to the New Jersey state aquarium. And from there we decided to go to the Reading Terminal. While we were there we ate Philly cheesesteaks (all three variations.....American cheese, Provalone, and Cheese Whiz).

We shopped the stalls, and ate fresh baked cookies, drank organic eggnog, and sampled other locally grown and artisanal products.

And then we went to Blue Mountain tastingroom and had some wine!

I tried the Chambourcin, the Merlot, and the Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Chambourcin was very good. The Merlot was a light bodied Merlot, but tasy, with vanilla and light hints of cherry. And the Sauvignon Blanc was a medium bodied dry red wine with lots of big fruit, oak and nce acidity. Good job!

And of course I got the last bottle of nouveau!
Great job!
