Wine Wednesday!

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted about Wine Wednesday!!

It definitely doesn’t mean that I haven’t been celebrating HUMP DAY with wine, just means I ain’t been blogging.

So, I’m cheating a little bit.  We had this wine with our celebratory dessert the other night, but it was just too good to not boast about today.

Jefferson Vineyard is located in Charlottesville, Virginia – such a magical place.  The cool thing about this wine is that I bought it on our 4th date….when we made a trip to Charlottesville.  We went to a bunch of wineries while we were there…got a little buzz and I fell in love with this wine.  I went to check out and realized that it was this tiny bottle and it cost $22.  The buzz was phenom, so I bought it anyways. And haven’t dared to break it out.  Until we celebrated one month of marriage.

This was is phenomenal….according to my mother-in-law it’s “tongue sucking good wine”.  It is sweet, but not too sweet.  A perfect dessert wine to pair up with a sweeter dessert, like this cobbler I made.

I wish I had more.  I guess we’ll just have to make a trip back to Virginia. 🙂
