Hey there are 12 wines to taste and I’m doing you all a solid by writing barely inteligible notes on them all
We’ll just entertain ourselves on here…
Can’t wait to read them back to front
Agreed, something meaty would tame those tannins, & it’s robust enough for fattier cuts as well I reckon — ribeye steak maybe?!
Or pulled pork even?
Don’t forget I’m a veggie! But Porcini mushrooms, oh yes!
Ooo yes please!
Yup, that would work!
Hello, I’m back! Have been having so much fun chatting to our members about The Community I didn’t get as much chance to post here as I’d like! Sorry everyone - glad to see you’re having fun though!
LOVE the pulled pork suggestion as a food match, especially as it would match the little spicy element well.
Go on then, marks out of 10?
In fact I do a mushroom sauce with dried porcini mushrooms to which I add some red wine and this would be beautiful both on the side and in the cooking!
Three bean and lentil chilli… easy on the spice…??
I quite like this and the earthiness and for the price it aint bad… 6-7/10 I reckon.
Don’t think you’d need to go all that easy on the spice even. I think this guy/girl can stand his/her ground
Oh that sounds good! I’m trying that later int he week with the rest of this bottle!
Yup, can see that too! Agreed re spice level — definitely hot enough as it is!
pretty good bank for your buck I reckon.
Load it in then…! Love a good spicy chilli
Got to say on first sniff I wasn’t sure I’d like this, but it’s absolutely delicious! A wine I could curl up on the sofa with. I’m giving it 8/10!
I might just have some with it tonight (I have some in the freezer - that’s how you live when living alone!).
Hmmmm… I think the flavours are great, but that alcohol burn… hmmm, can’t quite get past it. 5/10 (would have been a 6-7 otherwise I think).
I think food would balance it out fine. So I’m still going for a solid seven.
