Cakebread Rubaiyat

Dug a bottle of Cakebread's Rubaiyat out of the wine fridge the other night and could not believe that I had forgotten about it in there. Happy I found it because now is the time to drink it!

Cakebread's Rubaiyat is usually a blend of mostly pinot noir with some zin and syrah. I really love this wine because it is a light red that you can chill slightly. It's not sweet at all and great to enjoy on a hot summer day rather than white wine or beer. It's also a perfect barbecue wine because it is delicious with any kind of grilled meats. (Zin has always been my go-to barbecue wine, so it's nice to switch it up a bit!)

After polishing off the bottle, I realized this definitely needs to be a summer staple in our house. Cheers!
