I was sent a delicious bottle of Red Wine in the form of a delish Cabernet Sauvignon, from Avalon Winery. While I have truly been a Malbec girl in the past...I will entertain any generally decent red wine. However, this Avalon Winery 2012 Cabernet is so much more than just a decent red wine. It is peppery and divine and I actually paired it with a delicious slab of ribs that I prepared for my family. Talk about YUM factor!
This wine pairs nicely with a red meat or honestly a nice bowl of Olivia Pope Style Popcorn!...and the bottle is an affordable $12.99! This would be a perfect gift for your dinner party hostess as well.
The Green Factor of this VERY Red Wine
If you are anything like me, you LOVE when the products that you consume have a lightweight footprint and don't do earth any more damage.
I LOVE Avalon's Select Bio Cork because:
- It Prevents cork taint and oxidation
- The cork has oxygen control which will help to accentuate the wine's aroma profile (okay, good scent) and controls how the wine evolves in each bottle!
- The cork is made with 100% renewable energy!
- The cork is 100% recyclable!...all that you have to do is toss it in the recycle bin
and the best part...
The Bio Cork is Crumble FREE and will NOT break!
Avalon Winery has bottled its Flagship Cab with the Select Bio Closure and will now be using the Green Cork on ALL of its wines!
What do you think about Red Wine Going Green?
Disclosure: I was sent this bottle of wine to taste, enjoy and facilitate this post...but all thoughts and opinions are purely my own!
