Wine Recommendations from a Thrillerchick

Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Red Blend 2013

J.T. Ellison

by Amy

When it comes to birthdays, it seems like when it rains, it pours. 

In my life, I've got two birthday seasons I've noticed: March – May and  October – November. Which, if you think nine months backward, makes sense.

And since we've just entered March, it's Birthday Season #1 around these parts. And you know what that means? 

I'm on a quest to find wines that pair excellently with cake!

I know, I know—it is a hard life I lead.

First up in Birthday Season is Boyfriend, the resident dark-chocoholic and red wine addict. Thing is, Boyfriend isn't a fan of sweet, cloying wines, so I knew we couldn't go the way of dessert wine. 

A great solution: this Coppola Red Blend, which paired excellently with the dark chocolate cake we served.

A medium-bodied, fruit-forward wine, the Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Red Blend 2013 contains Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot—and you can taste the complexity of flavors at work. Fairly plummy, with notes of cherry and blackberry, it was a lovely wine to serve with dessert—without making everything over-the-top sweet.

You can grab a bottle here for $18.99 (though my local wine merchant sold it for $16.99).
