Name: Unreserved Smooth Red
Why did I decide to try this wine? Red wines can sometimes be intimidating to purchase and so I often go by the label…and when I say the label I mean the artwork on the bottle. In this case I thought the label was really clever but simple at the same time and when I flipped the bottle over and read “Perfect for your #UnreservedMoments” I was sold!
Would I prefer one glass or indulge in the bottle? Bottle. I love that it’s not expensive, doesn’t have fancy names affiliated with it and is just plain good wine.
What shoes would I wear drinking this wine? I spotted these boots as I was walking through the “fancy” section of The Bay in Toronto back in November… As soon as I was trying to pair this wine with shoes I immediately thought of them.
How would I describe the wine? This wine has a bit of a smoky smell, but doesn’t smell strong or sweet…it’s really a nice smell actually (which I don’t often find to be the case for red wines). The taste is light, smooth and really easy to drink. I am a huge fan of Great Big Friggin’ Red even though it is a sweeter red wine; I would classify this as it’s less sweet and less expensive sister wine.
