Sunday & Wine = Match Made in Heaven

I don't know what it is about Sundays, especially rainy and cold winter Sundays, which makes me want to curl up with a glass of rich red wine. Wine just seems to make the world more complete..and warmer. All the more reason I have fallen in love with a wine bar within walking distance of my house. Not only is it cozy, complete with couches and secret nooks to lounge in, they also have live music on Sunday evenings and 20% off bottles before 7 pm. The Acoustic Duo, on guitar and cello come together in the most inspiring way. Having only been playing together for two months, the harmony and grace of this music paired with the wine, will surely make you sink into your chair and relax for evening.

Last Sunday, we consumed a blend of Petite Verdot and Petite Syrah. Not as heavy as I was expecting it to be but full of flavor and structure with moderate tannins. Definitely a romantic wine which played into the atmosphere perfectly. This bottle, paired with the most generous size cheese plate, was the icing to top the perfect little Sunday cake.

I highly recommend the Wine Jar on Fillmore st. @ Bush st. Cozy up all winter long..it is the perfect way to end or start your week.

Cheers to winter, stay warm!
