Three Wines Under $10 for Valentine’s Day
While we love a leisurely stroll through a Lee’s or Total Wine here in Las Vegas to pick out an interesting bottle (or three) of special occasion wine, those bottles often cost us $20 or more per bottle. But we don’t always have the time to peruse the aisles. We also love a bargain, two of the many reasons we love our neighborhood Fresh & Easy. Especially when we find a bottle of wine that costs less than $10 and tastes better than similar bottles costing $25 or more.
These wines, two classic and one just for fun, are great choices to go along with your Valentines plans. And all are less than $10 a bottle leaving plenty of cash left over for impressing your Valentine with flowers or in my case, meat.
Ombretta Chianti 2008…a classic, dry Chianti full of cherry and lots of oak. Perfect with pasta, pizza, steaks and cured meats.
Montcadi Cava…an easy to drink, semi-dry Spanish sparkling wine. We love this citrusy, refreshing wine with Thai and Chinese dishes. We drink this all summer long when we grill outside. It also makes a perfect mimosa.
Chocolate Shop…an interesting merlot/syrah blend spiked with chocolate essence. A bit on the sweet side, making it a good dessert wine. This one is guaranteed to be a fun, conversation bottle, especially for chocoholics. The fragrance is like a box of chocolate covered cherries in a glass.
