I recently joined a wine club and I'm digging it! Thank you Lori! Shopping online at my leisure in the comfort of my own home, discovering new and exclusive wines and having them shipped directly to my door = Happiness in Every Sip. I borrowed that line from WineShop at Home, the club I joined, it's a true statement.
WineShop At Home, founded in 2005, is headquartered in the legendary Napa Valley. The winery, owned by the Fredrick family of Dallas, Texas, produces award-winning, exclusive, artisan wines across 50 brands. Their wines have won over 200 awards in national and international wine competions! And they've got everything to please any wine preference, choose from sweet and bubbly to dry and crisp whites, smooth and supple to bold and intense reds. WineShop at Home features artisan wines for every occasion, palate and personality.
Included in my last shipment was an excellent red wine blend, here's the description from the WineShop at Home website:
This Cookie Cellars Biscotti red wine blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Zinfandel, 25% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Franc and offers dark red-fruit characters like plum, strawberry, cherry and blueberry in the nose.
Later, we are transported into a rich aromatic world of smoky bacon and toasted oak. From a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, the wine provides a fair amount of tannins in the attack, but this sweet red still has a pleasant smoothness to it.
It is a medium-bodied wine that should be enjoyed lightly chilled with Mexican food, mildly-spiced Asian food, meatloaf or chocolate desserts.
This red fits right into my wheelhouse because it's so well rounded, it's smooth in a stand alone glass, it's smooth with a meal, it's smooth with dessert. If you have meatloaf planned for dinner for example, this is a smart choice and there's no worries about what wine to serve for dessert because the Cookie Cellars Biscotti has that covered too - great with brownies and a peanut butter frosting! Yes, a smoked meatloaf and brownies were on the menu when I had the girlfriend over for dinner on Monday night and c'mon, a wine with an element of smoky bacon in it? Can you say, "Perfect Pairing?" Yes, yes you can.....
The Cookie Cellars Biscotti is another MUST TRY and I'm giving it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.
Currently offering some great discounts, I highly recommend WineShop at Home, they've got award winning wines at every price, exclusive wines delivered right to your door!
