Wine lover, world traveler, love to try new wines. Ex military (go Navy)!!
Day 6 - Semi sweet White Zinfandel. Paired with a white cheddar really brings out the strawberry and watermelon! The white chocolate latte macchiato truffle brings out the smoothness in this wine. @Delectable Wine this is the Broadland White Zinfandel thanks! — 9 hours ago
To start off the Christmas season with my wine advent calendar, today’s wine is an extra dry Prosecco. I also bought the cheese and chocolate to pair with each wine so tonight I have a sharp white cheddar and a bourbon vanilla truffle. A nice way to start the holidays! @Delectable this is the Denominazione di Origine Controllata. — 5 days ago
Another nice blend from Italy. Other than me having a problem getting the cork out with three different wine openers, it ended up being worth having cork in my wine! Full bodied, dark fruit with a silky finish. Paired well with garlic oil and warm bread. — 13 days ago
Day #3 on the advent calendar. This is a Shiraz from Australia. Very light and fruity, paired with a creamy tomato and olive cheese and a mousse au chocolat truffle. Got photo bombed by my cat interested in the cheese so I just went with it! — 3 days ago
I saw where someone else described this years’ Nouveau as “bitter and tart” so I was worried because I really enjoy this wine with my Thanksgiving meal. I found it to be as expected; fruity and smooth. Thank goodness we all have different palates! Happy Thanksgiving to all my Delectable friends!! 🍷🍂🍽🦃 — 9 days ago
Trying new whites because I want to expand my knowledge on them. This is something I’ve never tried. To me, it has the creaminess of a Chardonnay and the juiciness of a Sauvignon Blanc. And....I’ve almost finished the whole bottle, it’s that good! 😲 — 15 days ago
