"Tango", "Cha Cha" and "Rhumba". You'd think I was writing a post about a dance lesson, wouldn't you?
Truth is, I'm actually writing about a nifty trio of wines I've just discovered. It was hard to choose between the three, but I decided on "Tango" by Dancing Coyote Wines as this week's selection in my "Cheap Wine with a Pretty Label" series. This label was so awesome, it stopped me in my tracks walking by the wine section at the grocery store. Wasn't even shopping for wine, but couldn't resist grabbing a bottle it was so darn cool.
Just look at that fun coyote cutting a rug (and note he's on the cork as well). I found "Tango" on sale for $9.99 and couldn't resist trying it out. And I'll tell you what, I really liked it. The label says it is "50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Tempranillo, 25% Cabernet Franc". It was a very nice mix. Smooth, not too dry. A bit fruity. Awesome. I loved this Bordeaux as much as I loved the label. And I will definitely be adding "Cha Cha" and "Rhumba" on my list to try in the future.
The wine went wonderfully with "Sixteen Candles" (enjoying a John Hughes marathon this week). Remember the school dance scene? Just seemed to fit with the Dancing Coyote. It also seemed fitting to enjoy a slice of this with the wine:
"Make a wish, Samantha." "It already came true."
Ahhh, that's the reason I love that movie--she got the guy AND she got cake.
Oh, and please don't send birthday wishes for me. This was just an excuse to eat cake. And yes, my son and I actually lit 16 candles. Go ahead, count them.
