Salmon fillet, coated with a honey-mustard sauce, and grilled to perfection on top of a cedar plank — this is by far one of my favorite recipes. In fact, this is my go-to Sunday supper. It’s super easy, definitely delicious, and is best paired with nicely chilled rosé.
Not fancy, but certainly fun, this Daily Drinker is available at almost any major grocer. So pick up a bottle and sip and savor Francis Coppola’s Diamond Edition Plum Label 2013 Petite Sirah with me. Cheers!
This wine always acts the part of my “special treat.” It’s the middle of the week, I’ve had a hard one, and I have a meal that just calls for a Sauvignon Blanc. I can’t help it, I splurge and I bring home a bottle by Duckhorn…
Technically, this could qualify as a Daily Drinker or a Special Sipper, but as Duckhorn runs just slightly over my price mark ($30 for this particular varietal), and I do tend to save it for those times when I need a pick-me-up, I’ve dubbed Duckhorn “special.”
And it is special. There’s something about the Sauvignon Blanc in particular that does…pick-me-up. The lightness, the fruit-forwardness, the floral elements, and a refreshing hint of minerality that brings it all together. It’s like, when I’m feeling out of balance, the balance of this wine kind of puts me back together again. And…I’m happy.
