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.
