Tonight for dinner I’m making mushroom pierogies with Dave’s Gourmet Red Heirloom Organic Pasta Sauce. The sauce is so amazing. It might be the best sauce I’ve ever had from a jar. Oh, and I’ll have some Italian pane bread with butter as well. It should be a good meal.
I’m thinking of watching Titanic, too.
To the wine. Allons-y.
This one has a dark ruby color with a bright purple meniscus. It smells smooth an plummy. I also get cherry and strawberry and hints of cantaloupe and cedar or oak or something woody.
To the tasting!
A slight bit of pepper with plums and a touch of green apples. And it’s dry. I wish the body were a little bigger, but it’s okay.
On the finish are strawberries and peppers and a bit of juiciness.
Overall, it’s a fine and pleasant wine, and I’m sure it will go well with the mushrooms and sauce.
A $14 price seems okay for this wine, which I give 89 points. It wins me on the front of the tongue and the finish.//
