Château Tire Pe DieM, Merlot

4/5 $12.00

When I describe this wine as “simple,” please do not think I am discounting it in the slightest. It’s just one I see as extremely accessible, and could be pleasing to most wine drinkers, from the amateur to the expert. The Château Tire Pe DieM is bright and fresh, with a slight spiciness. While drier, it’s also quite fruity, and as pretentious as it might sound, I really do think I tasted currants. As I mentioned, this Merlot is an easy drinking variety, and would probably pair well with most food, such as mild cheese, roasted chicken, or spicy pasta. Or, keep it in mind for your next barbecue, you know, when it’s not 40 degrees outside.

Advertising professional by day and wine drinker by night, often overwhelmed by the sheer choices in wine stores, I have a tendency to not drink the same wine twice. My biggest tip to all Amateur winos, never swirl the glass in your hand, you just look pretentious. Swirl it on the table and you'll never worry again about that favorite sweater having a big red wine stain on it.
