Off the Rack…Wine Review for the Weekend

In the past, I have been kind of neglectful when it comes to posting.  It is sad, but of course, life happens…which is good, right?  Well, there are times for relaxation in my world through running, yoga, and entertaining.  Entertaining is one of my favorite things to do, and so one night, my boyfriend decided to bring a bottle of wine over that was reminiscent to the one we had on our first Valentine’s Day together.  This is the basis for the Wine Review for the Weekend series.

This week, the wine of the weekend is Kluge Estate (now Trump Winery)’s New World Red.  It is one of the best red wines I have tasted, and it is versatile enough to pair with steak and chocolate.  While the wine we had on our first Valentine’s Day was from the Kluge Estate repertoire (Albemarle’s Simply Red), this red was full bodied with hints of oak, black cherry, and currant.  Of course, we chose to celebrate Valentine’s Day with chocolate and this wine.

There is no doubt that we will be adding more bottles of this, and the Albemarle Simply Red to the wine rack shortly.
