The Personalities of Wine & People, Part 4

This is the wine I’m having tonight

It’s the Sirius 2008 Bordeaux, a Merlot and Cabernet blend from the Bordeaux region of France.  Silver Medal Winner of the 2010 Bordeaux Competition, but that’s not why it’s going to be the wine in my glass tonight.

I’m going to have a BBQ!  I am grilling Ribs & Wings.  So I needed to find a wine that was going to go great with both grilled pork and grilled chicken.  The ribs are going to have a marinade, and I haven’t decided how I’m going to do my wings yet, so I had to pick a versatile wine.   This wine goes great with grilled food.  It’s a dry, medium bodied wine aged in oak.   I love the spice in this wine, and because the wine has a hint of spice it goes well with a wide range of foods.   It’s aged perfectly, and the winemaker, Maison Sichel, says this wine will drink perfectly between 2011 and 2015.  I love it.

Like I said, this wine is very versatile, and I like that characteristic in wine and people.  This wine sells for $19.48 in the Newfoundland Liquor Stores and worth it.
