Texas Twitter Tuesday is on Tuesday, March 6 this month and the theme is “Big Texas Reds”. With the weather as nice as it is, put a steak and some veggies on the grill and kick back on the patio with this month's wines.
For a lighter meal, try some cheeses (cheddar, monterey jack, and manchego pair well), crackers, and maybe some sauteed sweet peppers and onions.
The three wines selected for March are:
Llano Estacado Cellar Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, a full-bodied red with flavors of currant and cherry cassis, selling for about $17. Llano Estacado Winery is out near Lubbock.
Landon Winery Tempranillo 2010, a gold medal winner with cherry and plum flavors, selling for about $19. Landon Winery is near McKinney.
McPherson Cellars Sangiovese 2009, selling for about $16. McPherson Cellars is also near Lubbock.
To participate in Texas Twitter Tuesday, log in to Twitter (free to sign up) and go to the GoTexan TweetChat room. No registration or RSVP is required. Just show up at 7 p.m. on March 6, 2011 and join the discussion.
