So Easy to Love…2011 Robert Mondavi Coastal Crush Red Wine
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate it than with this awesome pairing of 2011 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Coastal Crush Red Wine and a box of Lula’s Sea Salted Caramels. This pairing really is “So Easy to Love”!
This brand new wine is value priced at $ 11.00 a bottle and is a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Malbec.
There are two basic questions I like to answer whenever I review a wine.
- What does it taste like?
- What food does it go with?
The grapes come from the central coast of California and the wine is a juicy blend of ripe plums, dark cherry, a hint of oak and some spice.
Foods to Pair With This Wine:
I would like this wine paired with any grilled meat – beef, pork tenderloin, or grilled salmon. I think it would be great served with my Bourbon Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day and the Central Coast of California, the wine was paired with Lula’s Sea Salted Caramels.
Lula’s Chocolates is located in Carmel-by-the-Sea. These decadent caramels are made using sea salt from Monterey Bay. They are absolutely delicious and pair perfectly with the 2011 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Coastal Crush Red Wine.
Note: I received one bottle of Robert Mondavi Coastal Crush Red Wine and one box of Lula’s Sea Slated Carmels to try for this review. No compensation was received. These are my honest opinions.
