Protea Red Featured in Apartment Therapy’s ‘Kitchn’


The season is turning, and sommelier Jayme Henderson, writing on Apartment Therapy’s “the kitchn” website, is advising readers to “Stock Up Now for Fall Drinking With These 10 Wines Under $20″ — including the protea Red.

Henderson, a Denver-based Sommelier, says her picks are “delicious, yet budget-friendly wines that pair perfectly with the season’s transitional weather and savory fare.” Here’s her note on the protea Red:

Protea Red, Cabernet Sauvignon Blend, Western Cape, S. Africa, 2012, $18 – Another wine from South Africa rightfully made this list. This savory wine delivers a smooth, lush, rich finish, supported by notes of coffee, black pepper, and ripe blackberry. I paired it this past Sunday with Weekend Pot Roast.
