Wine Wednesday - Las Rocas

I've come to a realization about my blog.  I just don't talk about wine enough.  Yes, I mention at the end of every post the reason I need to drink wine each day, but still....  The blog's name is Baby Mama Juice for goodness sake.  

Baby Mama Juice = Wine

From now on, we're going to be having "Wine Wednesdays."  It's going to be everything and anything about wine.  Have a question about wine?  Ask and I will do my best to find the answer.  I will share all of my favorites and try new ones out for you.  We may even try to get educated up in here.


I realize that I've made some promises before about trying new wines, etc.  I've fulfilled all of my promises, but never wrote about them.  Bad, bad blogger.  

I picked up a new wine to go with my homemade chili last night.  It's a Spanish Rose called  "Los Rocas."  It's a bit darker than I usually go with Rose, but I thought what the heck.  It was on sale for under $15 (I try to stay in the $10-$15 range for guinea pig wines).  


It's made from 100% Garnacha, which is a common red grape found in warm, dry climates like Spain.

My chili is thick, hearty, and a tad spicy.  The wine had flowery notes at first, but finished with a nice, mineral taste and a hint of spice.  It had enough body to compliment the chili and ended up being a great pairing.

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because we're participating in a group open house this Saturday afternoon.  Ugh.  There goes my free, fun Saturday.
