Paired with Randy’s Hors D’oeuvres
Which I honestly don’t remember at all – both the wine or the starters. But judging by the empty glass in the background of the clam chowder picture, I drank it all, which means I must have enjoyed it.
Paired with New England Clam Chowder
The chowder was good, as was the wine. It’s a Wednesday wine for me with a Tuesday price. I like it enough to finish the bottle, but it’s not fancy enough for a Friday or Saturday. But it is a good solid Sauvignon Blanc to have on hand if friends drop by unexpectedly. You can pull this out of the ice box and everyone will enjoy it.
Paired with Beef Empanadas
This is a Wednesday price point (more than $20/bottle) depending on where you buy it. But I honestly didn’t drink much of it. It went well with the empanada, so pairs well with King Ranch Casserole, Enchiladas, or Tacos. But it really is your standard red blend.
Paired with Steak au Poivre, Au Gratin Potatoes and Garlic Butter Mushrooms
Sadly I did not get a picture of the wine, but again a Wednesday price point – but would work well for a Sunday dinner with family because it has enough body to be perceived as a Friday or Saturday wine.
Chocolate Hot Buttered Rum paired with French Silk Chocolate Pie
Truthfully, I prefer the Prisoner wines to the Unshackled wines. However, the Unshackled is what I’m going to call a “pantry” wine. This is a good solid wine family that you should stock for friends that stop by unexpectantly. You can open the bottle and not feel bad if they don’t drink it all, or drink every bottle.
This could also make a good gift wine. Not too high a price point, but very drinkable, so great for taking to the neighbors for dinner.
