BERKELEY (KCBS) – Here’s why you shouldn’t be afraid to add a little splash to a wine that’s lacking, or cook with a wine that’s past its prime.
When it comes to mixing wines, I would never hesitate to mix two if I feel they tasted better together, or if I simply prefer the combined flavor. My wife and I were at a fundraising dinner recently that had a red wine and a white wine at the table. The red still had a harsh edge, so I raised some eyebrows when I splashed a bit of the white into my glass along with it. Sure, I got some looks, but by golly, the wine tasted a lot better.
