I am really excited to bring you today’s post as it is featuring two of my favorite things:
Red wine and cheese!
MD and I subscribe to Wine Enthusiast, a magazine that provides the best in wine 101, entertaining and even a little bit about food and travel. Each month it arrives in our mailbox, we quickly pluck it out and flip through the pages to see what wines they are featuring and more importantly, what wines we need to add to our wine cabinet.
In this month’s issue, Wine Enthusiast provided a list of the top 100 affordable wines.
Naturally, I need to do some of my own research. As we read through some of the top wines, I knew I wanted to feature a red wine. That narrowed it down some. Next, I needed to be sure it was a wine that I could easily find in my area. Lastly, I wanted it to be a red wine that I hadn’t tried before.
I decided to go with #2: Dominio de Eguren 2009 Portocolo red wine.
There it is on the cover!
MD and I really, really loved this wine. The taste was very rich and smooth. This wine would be perfect even for someone who doesn’t drink red all that often.
This would also be excellent to serve while hosting. At $8 a bottle, the affordable price allows you to serve a delicious wine without having to spend much at all.
You could serve this with a nice dinner, or simply enjoy it with a scrumptious cheeseboard like we did!
There is no doubt this wine will make a nice pair with most everything. I highly encourage you to go out and pick up a bottle or two soon! With the cold winter months already sneaking up, this will be perfect to keep you and your honey warm.
Let me know when you try it!
