It's true. You know it. Life truly is too short to drink bad wine. A couple weeks ago, (4 to be exact, thank you Instagram time stamp) my friend Amber posted a picture on Instagram of a new wine on she tried and tagged me in it. The caption read: "yummy delight". How could I not want to try this?
I had been trying to come up with a name for my blog, and just like that, running and wine / #Winezday was born. I decided it would be fun on the 3rd Wednesday of each month to try a new wine that has been suggested to me by you. I'm a big Chardonnay fan. So I turn to you to help me find new wines to love. Here's Amber's:
Sterling Vintner's Collection 2011
Our Meritage is a classice blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc from some of California's premier red-wine appellations. This richly textured wine has flavors of cherry, dark chocolate, black raspberry, and vanilla, culminating in a full, lingering finish. Enjoy with grilled or roasted meats and heavy vegetables.
I have say I was pleasantly surprised. It was indeed "Yummy Delight!". This is a tasty blended wine that you could bring to a party (while not breaking the bank) and even a white wine only lover could enjoy. Price point here on the West Coast is $8.99 - $12.99 depending on where you purchase.
I'm off to finish enjoying my glass and catch up on The Bachelor ;)
Who has a suggestion for next month's #winezday?
