Wine Wednesday!

wine wednesdayFor today’s Wine Wednesday, I bring you a very affordable (think under $10 a bottle) red- perfect for your at-home evening, enjoying a steak off the grill with the hubs. This was a 2009 (the pick is from another bottle) Ravenswood Shiraz. I enjoy most of the Ravenswood collections. They are very drinkable, easy to find, and inexpensive.

My notes:

  • good everyday value
  • color- plum
  • scent- berry, hint of tobacco
  • light, approachable
  • taste- plums, slight earthy tones

The experts: “Lively raspberry, citrus tones give way to bright, juicy, pure fruit finish balanced by slightly dusty ripe tannins.”  care of the folks at the Wine Encyclopedia.
