Wine Review: Mommy's Time Out Rose`Wine Delicious Pink
I also love the name chosen from this wine line from Italy. Moms do need a time out; I know I do! Wine is a great way to relax with friends and just interact with grown ups. We love our children, but we need to have a little "time out" to have some fun.
This wine is a light pink color. The nose is filled with a delicate aroma of ripe strawberries. This wine is very fruit forward, and a wine that would be a great wine for the new wine drinker. The palate has those same berry flavors, primarily strawberries. It is easy to sip, with or without food. There is enough residual sugar to please the ladies who like a little sweetness. It is a wine to keep on hand so you will have something to please all your guests. I just don't feel that I am a good hostess if their is not a wine that everyone can enjoy.
So many women ask me these questions about wine, "Is it dry or have that "taste" meaning tannins when they call me, looking for a wine in a wine shop or grocery store. I ask them what they are looking for? This wine is a wine for the ladies who like a fruity wine that looks pretty, taste fruity, and won't have them buzzed!
I would pair this wine with chicken and pork skewers with a sweet glaze.
Also fresh goat cheese on a French baguette would pair well with this wine, especially Purple Haze goat cheese. Anything with a bit of bacon or prosciutto would work well with this wine. Here is a recipe to try with this wine. Try it and tell me what you think! Note: This wine was a sample provided for review. SRP $9.99 http://www.mommystimeout.net/#!mommys-time-out/c24i2
Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps
Serves: 12-15 appetizer servings
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
1 (1 pound) package of sliced bacon
1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
¼ teaspoon of Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes. Cut each bacon slice into thirds. Dredge chicken into mixture, then wrap each chicken cube with bacon and secure with a wooden tooth pick. Coat a rack and broiler with nonstick kitchen spray. Place chicken on rack in broiler pan. Bake 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Note: You can also use a baking pan lined with release foil paper if you don't own a rack. With this method you may need to let the chicken wraps drain on paper towels before putting them on your serving platter.
