What Wine Did You Drink Today #1?

We have grown fond of the Kirkland Sangria as the base. All thats needed is fruit and you’re good to go. The large bottle is ideal for a party bowl.

A few good bottles. Last night we had this nice big juicy zin with a huge bone in porter house steak. This was a big wine- I call it giant purple in a glass.

Tonight was just a chicken salad so DH grabbed this Pinot. Maison L’Envoye makes a few Pinots I really like.

I had an excellent 2014 Chateau Sixtine Chateauneuf Du Pape tonight. It went great with a braised BBQ rabbit leg cooked on pecan wood with a citrus BBQ glaze at Laurel and Sage in Montclair, NJ.

Hade a Spanish rose with lunch. I know nothing about this wine, but picked it up at WF on the wine guy’s recommendation. Minerally, a hint of sweet, and a bit fizzy in the mouth.

First time seeing a Txakolina rose. Good summer choice. It’s Basque.

I had an excellent 2017 Zuccardi Concreto Malbec tonight that was listed at #10 on the 2018 Wine Enthusiast top 100 list. This wine could be cellared for at least another 15 years and still be going strong.

This California Cab went nice with gnocchi. Not too big, spicy, tons of red fruit.

We had dinner with some friends at Bloom in Verona NJ last night and they brought some excellent wines with them; a 1998 Silver Oak cabernet and a 2009 Ridge Dynamite Hill petite Sirah. We brought an excellent Châteauneuf Du Pape and a red blend that were previously mentioned in earlier posts.

One of my favorite Pinots. Had it with grass fed filets, stewed green beans, and toasted baguette. Seemed fitting that we watched Grand Cru while eating.

I’m not usually a fan, but this Petit Sirah was pretty good. Came in a wine club shipment. Rich, deep dark fruit, with a hint of smoke.
