I picked this bottle up a few months ago after a bad day. I remember that I was feeling fiery and wanted to do something I don’t usually: buy a bottle with a name or label that spoke to my emotion. I ended up having a friend call me to get together, so the bottle got tucked away. It ended up being perfect for me to enjoy tonight, along with Will and Grace!

The best thing about this wine: convenient and a great value
Available at: Target
By the bottle: $9.99

Pairs well with: steaks on the grill, beef stew

Girl & Dragon * Malbec * 2016

La Posta Pizzella * Malbec * 2016

My daughter turned three years old Monday. Three years of life is a short time lived, yet I’m continually amazed how a mere handful of years can shape, change, and grow a child. She is now able to have an opinion on a variety of things, and we let her choose where she would like to eat for dinner. She landed on Lead Belly at Midtown Crossing, which made me extremely proud of her youthful wisdom. The reality is we are frequent patrons because Lead Belly provides a nice menu variety, from entree dishes to sandwiches and burgers. I’ve never looked at the wine menu before, usually relying on the excellent source of local beers and well-prepared mixed drinks. For the birthday celebration, I took my first try at the wine list.

The best thing about this wine: smooth for a Malbec
Available at:   Lead Belly
By the bottle: $36, by the glass: $9.00
Pairs well with: chicken, pork

f you like Malbec, try this wine.
