Months ago, my friend CB, did a giveaway on her blog for a bottle of wine. Not just any wine, but Cupcake Wine....How Perfect!! I, of course, didn't win her giveaway and have been searching for this wine ever since. I asked at our local liquor store many weeks ago and they looked at me like I was nuts. So you can imagine my delight when I stopped in the other night and found it! Two types of it! I proceeded to buy both the Chardonnay and the Merlot. To go along with tonight's dinner of prosciutto and Gruyere stuffed pork chops with white wine and grapes, with pancetta fried potatoes and honey glazed carrots; we opened the Merlot. Well... I opened the Merlot and began drinking as I cooked (a habit I picked up from my Mother).
The wine is so smooth...no harsh aftertaste whatsoever. Rich and luscious. It is a definite "buy again" (soon) wine. Delish.
Here is a pick of the wine bottle (almost empty) and dinner....please note: I am terrible at photographing food. Am trying SO hard to find the time to learn how to do it better!! Bear with me!
Ok, that is all I have for tonight...Enjoy and Drink more Wine!
