99 Cents Only Wine of the Week

bernardo | Jun 27, 200508:30 PM     22

Wine selection at the stores has noticeably picked up over the last few weeks with a variety of reds and whites from CA, France and Australia.
My recommendation for this week is Southern Tracks 2000 Cabernet-Merlot, SE Australia. Big, full-bodied & tasty red with berry and oak overtones, slightly sweet and tannic; pair with grilled steaks, red sauce pastas, leg of lamb, beef stews and strongly flavored blue veined cheeses.
The Southern Tracks reds are moving very fast, the chards less so, but in either case you snooze you lose for sure.
Disclaimer: Wine of the week is my designation, not that of the 99 Cents store.
