Rosemary Infused Red Wine Update
I paired it with a beef/potato/veggie plate. Not that I am a wine connoisseur, but anyway....
I could just taste a hint rosemary after a week. I used a Cabernet Sauvignon wine, and honestly I thought it tasted wonderful. Hubby didn't like it, but he doesn't like all red wines either.
I poured the wine into two dark, clean bottles with screw tops to infuse, then drained and poured back into the original bottle. Most organic wines that I can find here have screw top lids.
The source I used stated using whole, fresh sprigs to infuse, but I'm sure if I had chopped a few leaves it would have had a stronger flavor of rosemary in it.
Although I could find information on the internet, I went to the library and ordered several "tonic" books to read through too. This "herbal journey" of mine has been lots of fun.
