ONTARIO ONLY. No moving to wine board!!!
The challenge: Choose me a sub-$30 red wine to go with tomato-sauce based pasta and meat tonight
The reward: My gratitude :D
Thanks to Googs and a few other posters suggestions, this wine newbie has tried a few different red wines now (the red Zinfandel Googs reccomended, and a couple other random ones I either researched on the internet or read comments about at the LCBO.. I've tried a Zin (red and white both), Malbec, and Cab. Sauv, and actually all of the bottles have been pretty good). What I do know, though, is that I used the Malbec last time for my Italian food (since its just what i happened to be eating that night, wasn't planned that way) and definitely do not think it was ideal.. It was better on its own without the food
So, my friends, let's see what you come up with :) I'll be heading to the LCBO shortly before my late dinner tonight, so I look forward to what you got for me
Multiple suggestions is fine too, I'd buy more than one type and just keep them handy for future dinners
