Ordering a good bottle of wine can be a challenge if you do not know much about wines. Yes, you most certainly know that red wine goes best with meat and white one is best when paired with fish. But how do you choose the right wine when it comes to texture, fragrance and bouquet. And because most people know almost nothing about wine bouquet, they usually rate the quality with the price.
The more expensive the wine is, the higher the quality. But this is not always the case. It is always better ask the waiter for his opinion on which wine to choose. If you need to go wine shopping because you are planning a romantic dinner or simply having few friends over for a dinner, here’s a list of quality red wine that will make your evening even more enjoyable.
Cabernet Shiraz Merlot
Our fist suggestion is Shiraz Cabernet Merlot, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. Shiraz Cabernet Merlot is a quality red wine with extraordinary combination of different aromas and flavors. The blend creates finer tannin structure with savory earthy notes and leaf herbaceous edges. The final structure is Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec, all together contributing to the richness of the taste. Shiraz Cabernet Merlot has deep purple and red shades with hidden blueberry and cassis flavors combined with the earthy and leafy notes.
Pinot Noir is a dry, red wine that features cherry, strawberry, raspberry and blackberry flavors. The presence of earthy and herbal flavors are common in a glass of Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is among the most elegant wines coming out of France that goes very well with both traditional and classic dishes thanks to its acidity, silky tannins and light bodied style.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most popular red wines coming from France that blends perfectly with dishes like red meat, lamb, steak, heavy cream dishes and desserts with dark chocolate. Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied red wine with rich flavor of blackberry, black cherry, black currant and lighter flavors of black pepper, vanilla and violet.
