I went to the Boston Wine Expo this weekend.
If you like hedonistic, big red wines with lots of tannins then check out these babies!
Francis Ford Coppola Director’s Cut: 100% cabernet sauvignon harvested from prestigious Sonoma hillside vineyards. Big and ripe with blackberry jam, plum, black currants, and cherry cola highlights. Great with grilled steak, roasted pork and braised meats.
DaVinci Chianti Riserva: 100% Sangiovese with aromas of dark fruit and cherry, balanced with hints of vanilla and cinnamon.
Houghton Shiraz: berry and plum aromas with notes of black pepper, violets, smoke and mint. Berry, rich cocoa and savory spice flavors are delicious and complex.
Houghton Cabernet Shiraz Merlot: This ripe, layered ample red wine is redolent of red fruits, cocoa, sweet herbs and toasty oak. Full and rich on the palate, with smooth supple tannins. Its lush red berry, currant, plum flavors are deliciously enhanced by rich chocolate and warm spice tones.
Find of the Day: Moonstruck Artisan Chocolates — especially the Dark Chocolate Chile Variado — dark chocolate with ancho and chipotle chile powder. Yum!
