I’m a sucker for a cute name, especially when it comes to wine. If I’m walking down the aisle of the local wine store and I see a wine with a horse or a dog in the name or a picture of an animal on the label, it’s a pretty sure bet it’s going to end up in my basket.
Anyhoo, I noticed this little number the other day and decided to give it a whirl since cupcakes are one of my very favorite food groups.
It was cheap, I don’t remember how much it was and I
am a little bit buzzed too lazy, to go look for the receipt, but I want to say it was in the $10 range.
I was surprised by this wine. I seriously didn’t expect much from it and it’s not what I would call a “serious” wine, but for $10, I feel like I got quite a deal. It was balanced, had a little bit of oak and a really nice feel to it. I will definitely buy this wine and the others under this label again. For a simple steak dinner or even a burger, this wine would certainly fill the bill!
I did a little research on it, and the name of the distributer is Underdog Wine Merchants. How cool is that name? Sigh.
