Happy Winesday Wednesday, friends!
This week has been a bit rough- Wes has been a tad more fussy than usual, the smoke from the Washington fires has kept un indoors and my mom busted her glasses. So that’s fun. It’s a good thing there’s wine.
And it’s still pinot noir for me. So delicious. My mom actually picked up a couple bottles of Mark West which she said is her staple ‘bring over to other people’s houses’ wine. Good choice, ma!
From the website: A pleasing mix of black cherry, cola, strawberry, plum, and soft tannins. PAIRS PERFECTLY WITH: Juicy cheeseburger, grilled salmon,or Thanksgiving with all of the fixings.
In my opinion, I think it’s a great wine on its own! But now that I read the description which includes a cola taste, I can now pick it out and see why it would be a good pairing with a hamburger. Crap, now I want a hamburger.
Now if only Wes would take a nap…..
What are you drinking this week?
Yep…Mark West is good stuff! Your mama is one smart lady.
I didn’t know this was her go to until just now. And it’s pretty darn tasty!
I’ve got a volcanic red that is just coming up on 3 months, and I’ve been dying to try it!
My favorite chardonnay was on sale at Whole Foods for $14.99 last week so I picked it up as a nice bottle for my parent’s recent visit, even though, let’s face it- anything is “nice” compared to their Franzia Chardonnay Boxed wine…
ahh i can’t wait to sample more stuff in the states when I’m home! and go to whole foods/trader joes
