#kamenwines and Tenuta Di Renieri Chanti Classico at

I wanted to share two great wines that we have had recently. One was at our favorite place to dine-DCC and the other was with my friends that own La Bichette on Hillcrest across from SMU. Such a cute place for a blowout and makeup when you are going out on the town or just for fun!
Check it out below!

So one weekend, Don was gone to ABQ for a fraternity weekend. Marsha and Tammy, the mother-daughter owners asked me to come by and watch what goes on during a busy Saturday (Highland Park ISD homecoming!). I ended up helping out for eight hours. It was fun meeting so many people! 

The night before, we ate dinner at Amore' Italian Restaurant. Tammy and I had eggplant parmesan and Marsha and Neil had grilled salmon. It was so delicious paired with this wine.

2009 Tenuta Di Renieri Chianti Classico Riserva ($25)

The other great wine Don and I had was on half-price bottle night at the DCC. We ate on the patio enjoying the cool breeze of September (really)! Here's the wine that Aaron Benson suggested for us that evening.

 2008 Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon ($80) from Sonoma Valley. This is one fine wine! And after doing a little research, it turns out that Robert Kamen is a Hollywood screenwriter (for over 20 years). Movies like Taken, the Karate Kids series, the Transporter series, The Fifth Element just to name a few.
