Super Sunday is just around the corner and we know that our Broncos are going to come home from California victorious! We’re planning to throw a pretty good little shindig at our house for the game and we’re going to need plenty of delicious and inexpensive red wine to serve. So this week we decided to feature one of our absolute favorite affordable reds, the 2012 Don Ramon. This exuberant blend of Grenache and Syrah is downright delicious. The nose starts off with plenty of plum and red cherry notes as well as hints of toasty oak and spice. On the palate, you’ll notice that the wine is lush, round, and wonderfully juicy. Notes of blackberry jam and blueberry pie filling mingle with mild flavors of vanilla, mocha, and cinnamon to create the sort of dynamic flavor profile that is almost never found in such an inexpensive wine. It has plenty of character and yet it isn’t edgy or aggressive so you can pour it for any of your guests without fear that it’ll be too much for any of them. This one is a perfect choice for pairing with a hearty red chili or a slice of pizza this weekend and beyond.
Food Pairing:The 2012 Don Ramon is a perfectly drinkable wine and needs no accompaniment to be thoroughly pleasant to sip. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good food pairing wine. I think you’ll love it when you pair it up with a warm bowl of red chili or a thick slice of homemade pizza. But this one isn’t just good for those meals, instead it has the sort of drinkability and modest price that should make it a perfect candidate for your new “house red”.
