For 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.
- good everyday value
- color- plum
- scent- berry, hint of tobacco
- light, approachable

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.
