Happy Thursday! So tonight I've come home at a reasonable hour and what the heck? Why not open a bottle of wine? For this evening, it's a recently delivered wine club selection from Reininger Winery in Walla Walla, the 2012 Helix Stone Tree SoRho, a southern Rhone style blend of Mourvedre (42%), Cinsault (31%) and Grenache (27%) that ends up being such a food friendly sort of wine!
Overall, I would rate this wine a solid 8, it's a great blend and the price is reasonable at $36 before any wine club discounts. As I mentioned, this is a very food friendly wine, and tonight I'm pairing it with a nice panko crusted walleye filet, with some oven roasted fingerling potatoes and steamed asparagus, the fruit in this wine really accents the flavors of the walleye, a personal favorite when it comes to fresh water fish. Cheers!
