All knees and elbows – well, that describes us to a tee, but that doesn’t stop us from hitting the dance floor and cutting a rug…unfortunately for us, into many slices. But it’s all about the confidence, and when you show your onlookers something new and own it, that’s how new trends are started. Such is the idea behind this iconoclastic red blend from Washington – just because nobody’s tried it before, doesn’t mean the style’s not there, and a new trend is started in every glass.
The aromas and flavors of this wine range from dark fruits to kitchen spices, with a smoky, meaty undercurrent. Trust Me, You Can Dance is more twerk than waltz, full-bodied on the palate, perfectly ripe with fresh red cherries, blackberries, clove and bacon fat notes. A stunning, lingering, chocolaty finish ends with a crunchy tannic edge. Cha Cha Cha!
Spicy Mexican cuisine, charcuterie, appetizers such as roasted nuts and briny olives, pasta puttanesca, Moussaka.
