October 2017 | Conundrum Red
Our October staff pick was chosen by Rhonda, an employee at Bremer’s for 14 years and the person we all go to for food and wine pairings. Rhonda’s pick, Conundrum Red is a wine she first tried when she brought it to her sister’s house for a family gathering. Some drank it alongside roast beef, others had it with burgers and it was a big hit all around! Rhonda suggested it would also be very good with an assortment of hard cheeses. So, as we are going into the season of holiday get-togethers, pick up a bottle of this red wine that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
“A rich, dark red, it offers aromas of ripe berries and plums, warmed by a hint of cocoa. Dried fruit and the taste of chocolate-covered cherries come through on the palate, while a wisp of smokiness makes this wine – created from dark red varietals including Zinfandel and Petite Sirah – the perfect complement to grilled meats and full-flavored dishes.” -Conundrum Wines
