Nothing floats my boat more than a “price conscious” wine. We call them daily drinkers. Aka – keeps us away from the pricey stuff in the back of the wine cellar.
I discovered Underwood when I found the cans last year. Needless to say I was stoked to see it in a bottle at the store. Bonus: it’s screw top.
This is yum. Black cherry – bright – baking spice – currant – fruit forward rather than alcohol forward.
In the glass you can tell by the color it’s a light drinker. Lighter in color. Pro-tip: tip your glass and the more clear liquid you see at the edge the higher in alcohol. This one? Not that high. Also if you swirl the glass and the liquid comes down in sheets rather that big fat drops, also a sign of lower alcohol. Now you see why us nerds are swirling.

We paired this with …. “pre dinner.” Sundays we start a little earlier. Otherwise dinner was Pork Chops in a white wine cream sauce with mashed potatoes and roasted broccolini.
This guy is a little too easy to sip down.
Let me know if you find and and what you think!
