Unlike books, we have zero qualms with picking our vino based off the label. (A cool design has to mean an awesome wine, right?) But in case you're still not sure how to select the right wine based on your favorite flavor profile (a fancy way of saying how something breaks down by taste, temperature, and texture), we tapped the pros at Winc to help guide your selection process. And—bonus!—all their labels are pretty chic. Salut! 🍷
If take your morning coffee black...
Try the 2016 Chop Shop Cabernet Sauvignon.
Do you skip the sugar or prefer straight espresso for a pick-me-up? Then you don't shy away from bold, more bitter flavors. In wine, those flavors typically come from tannins, a naturally occurring compound in grape skins, seeds, and stems.
Tannins add a more intense, structured flavor to wines (along with that drying sensation on your tongue) and pair well with meat-heavy meals because they won't disappear on the palate after a bite of fattier food. The Chop Shop Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and full-bodied crowd-pleaser that will pair with any of your favorite comfort foods.
Plus, for a limited time Winc is offering Motherly readers, two complimentary bottles of wine (a $26 value) with their order.
Cheers to a whole new way to discover and enjoy wine.
