wine wednesday: red truck

My hubby introduced me to Red Truck wine 
10 years ago when we were dating.  
In fact, he introduced me to wine, in general.  
{one of the millions of reasons I love him}

It wasn't that we were at a fancy restaurant and we ordered an expensive bottle of wine...I remember Red Truck being a bottle he whipped out and we enjoyed at his place while playing cards together and talking late into the night.

That is Red Truck.  A cheap red, very casual, with a fun label.

To reminisce I had to buy a bottle...

Now that my palette is more advanced I can say I have moved on from Red Truck's very mild taste...but if you are new to reds, as I was, this may be a good "beginner red."  There is not a whole lot of bite to the taste; however, it has fabulous "legs", a fun, country label, and goes down smooth.  

Easy to down {careful, girlies!}...with no headache!

Pair it with a meaty lasagna or meaty conversation 
with your favorite friend {or love!}
