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 “horse” or “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…She Drinks! | 8 Comments »

3 hard boiled eggs, peeled & sliced
1 head romaine
handful of parsley
2 green onions
4 cups cooked chicken
1/4 lb blue cheese
1/2 c red wine vinegar
1 t Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper from the mill
1 T or so of reserved blue cheese
Start by frying the bacon (that phrase makes me all happy inside). When it’s crispy, drain it on paper towels until it cools down.
sliced green onions
mince the garlic, add the vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper to taste and Worcestshire sauce. Take a little bit of the blue cheese and mash in with the vinegar mixture. Slowly add the olive oil while whisking continuously to make a yummy dressing..
yowsa! this is good….
I chilled a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc (Meridian has a nice light one) to serve with it.
