WTDOMN: Pacific Star 's Dad's Daily Red 2002

It's the new year and we are all a little lighter in the pockets and dragging ourselves back to the office. So for this week's "What to Drink on Monday Night", I'm recommending Pacific Star's Dad's Daily Red 2002. If you can scrape $12 bucks together you can have a great wine that's a blend of predominately Carignane,with Petit Sirah, Merlot, Grenache, Charbono, and Zinfandel all from Mendocino County. I can probably guarantee that most people haven't tasted at least one of these varietals and you can have them all in a wine for under $20. In fact with a case discount...

Dad's Daily Red is a blend made by Sally Ottoson in honor of her father's prescription of one glass of red a day to aid his digestion ( that's her Dad on the label). It has nice supple tannins to support the enjoyable dark fruit and spice inside. I'd pair it with casual Italian foods, like Pizza or spaghetti & meatballs. See, Monday's not so bad.

For a pleasant, everyday drinking, pop's is right. The different varietals really make a pleasant wine drinking experience at an excellent price.
