I am a Spring Baby (April) and as we move closer to Daylight Savings Time (Sunday, March 13, 2011) I begin my birthday countdown! While I hate that when we 'Spring Ahead' I lose an hour of much needed sleep, I do know this means the sun will be back soon! Longer hours of sunlight and my birthday ahead, what's not to love right?
Powerful fruit flavors, combined with a supple texture, will appeal equally to enthusiast and novice alike.
2010 World Wine Competition, Silver, Highly Recommended, Best Buy
"Blueberry, tomato and herb aromas have nice purity and follow through on a supple entry to a dryish, savory medium-to-full body with a firm, char roasted pepper and powdery tannin finish. Try with tapas or pate."
Food Pairing Recos
The aromas of tobacco in this red call for grilled or barbecued dishes. Its cherry jam flavors along with spices and hints of leather marry beautifully with spare ribs covered in gobs of sweet tangy sauce. Serve with hearty foods such as marinated herbed lamb or grilled Italian sausages with potatoes, onions and bell peppers. Ultimate red for pairing with chicken or beef and even spicy pasta dishes or Osso Buco!
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Net wt. 3 lbs
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - These exceptionally fresh cheesecakes and cakes require 2-Day delivery for an additional $7.99. (and while I normally hate when shipping charges are almost a quarter of the price of the item, in this case I tell you this cake is just that good!)
Whether they become special components in a very romantic meal menu or even just the highlight to a relaxing evening in, you can't go wrong, and together they make a killer combo that deliver just the right one-two punch!
