Lunatic 2012 Red Wine - Colleen's Kitchen

Okay, I have to admit it, I first picked up this bottle of Lunatic 2012 Red Wine because of the label. I mean, how intriguing is a wine called Lunatic with a picture of hands cuffed together?

And then, the wine steward poured a bit in my glass and I sniffed, swirled, sniffed again, and took a sip. Wow! Supple, dark, and juicy it boasts hints of spicy cedar and a smooth blackberry finish. It’s a standout wine for it’s price category of under $15.

I knew right away that this wine was destined for barbecue. Nevermind that it’s not exactly barbecue season in the Pacific Northwest. Yet.

I also happen to have this new bottle of Organic Sriracha and Roasted Garlic Barbecue Sauce that I picked up. Kismet? Definitely.

And so the marriage of this beautiful blend of Sangiovese, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon and my scrumptious Sriracha BBQ Chicken Sandwiches was born. The combination of dark fruit and spicy, tender chicken is a marriage made in wino heaven. So much so, that I already have plans to reunite the two.

As with any part of a healthy lifestyle, always enjoy alcohol responsibly and in moderation.
