OK - ya got me - it's not a Sunday, it's a Monday. Over here in the US, it is a holiday, so it sure feels like a Sunday. But I do have a Red for today. It's a 2008 Marr Cellars Selena Cuvee Grenache from a local producer. Picked this one up ny neighborhood wine shop on a recommendation from the owner and I'm glad I did. Uncorked it about an hour ago to let it breathe a bit, as the subtle notes in Grenache need some time to develop. Tasting the wine, I get some nice cherry and raspberry notes on the tongue with a light finish. The alcohol sits at 13.8% and the color is a very light ruby.

This wine should go well with the fruit based Soffritto I've prepared to top off some Pork Loin Spiedino that will hit the grill later. See the recipe below (from the great website Cook the Book):
In Italian, spiedino means 'little spit' and refers to meat grilled on skewers over an open fire. Today's Cook the Book recipe, excerpted from A16 Food + Wine , is for Pork Loin Spiedino with Pine Nut, Garlic, and Currant Soffritto. A soffritto is a combination of aromatic ingredients simmered in olive oil. It can be used as a simple flavor enhancer; a base for other recipes; or a sauce, as it is here.
