Wine Review!

Here's a fun tidbit of information. The ShoeFanatics are total winos. We went to Napa Valley on our honeymoon. Now we like to think we are connoisseur's...although we are probably just a couple of lushes (is that a word?). Anyway, since we love wine and we love to try new wine and we love sharing wine knowledge, every so often I hope to blog about it.

A friend recommended that we try Mirassou Pinot Noir. She assured me it was a bargain for under $10 and a staple in her household. Never one to pass up a great deal (or a glass) I picked up a bottle to have with our Duck Quesadillas.

It is now a staple in the ShoeFanatic household. This was really, really good wine. Very smooth to drink by itself or with dinner. And it complimentated the "gamey" duck flavor nicely. Mr. ShoeFanatic commented that it had a very strong plum aroma and he was right. I think this would be a good wine for people who are still on the fence about whether or not they like reds. It's not nearly as big and dry as a cabernet but it's not sweet either. We will definitely be trying this again. Actually, we already purchased another bottle. ;)

Thanks, Jennifer!
