This snow is putting everyone in a funk. All the more reason to drink red wine! Last Sunday I was grabbing a few things from Trader Joe’s when I happened upon this lovely bottle of Pinot Noir. The display promised many great things. A dark, delicious wine that has garnered awards from the California coast. Hmm…for $6.99 into the cart it went. An hour later, down the hatch it went too!
The color was very inky and dark. So far, so good. It tasted of smooth vanilla with mocha and dark fruits. Mmmm…me likey. The key was to let it breathe for a little bit or use an aerator. My husband and I paired it with Trader Joe’s blue cheese that sold for $3.00. Not ashamed to say that was our dinner along with some crusty bread from Costco. Sometimes the kitchen closes around here. 😉
Overall, this makes for a very easy and obscenely reasonable wine to drink any night of the week.
