‘Wine On Wednesday’ is a new tradition at HIWTHI. Please don’t judge, I really don’t drink that much, some of my closest friends can vouch for me…or call my bluff. ANYWAY, I am on the hunt for drinkable, affordable and downright delicious wines to keep up my heart-healthy habit so if you have any suggestions send me a note. I may not have a new wine every single Wednesday, but I will do my best and all reviews will be honest and not at all snobby.
This first wine was brought over by a friend- thanks K! It was love at first sip. Apothic Red’s Winemaker Blend from 2013 is a keeper. You can see right away that this wine is on the dark side, my favorite kind of red. It is a blend of Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet and Zinfandel. I still read the label on bottles to learn more about the wine before I drink them and they mentioned notes of vanilla and mocha. I taste that, but I also tasted juicy cherries. To be honsest, my palette is not as refined as some, but it’s a learning process that is constantly evolving. You can find this wine at Costco for $7.99. It is a great one to drink during the week with pasta or pizza, but you can reserve it for a girls night in too served with sharp white cheddar or dark chocolate. The best way to enjoy it however, is on its own.
Cheers my dears!
