In today’s novelty-food-item-obsessed world, it’s easy to read the words “Cheeseburger Wine” and recoil in horror, imagining some terrible food laboratory’s attempt to capture the flavor of a cheeseburger within a bottle of wine.
Thankfully, Cheeseburger Red from Rootstock Cellars is simply a wine designed to complement a cheeseburger. They say it’s “smooth and jammy, bursting with red fruit that so perfectly complements a slight char. The tannins are assertive, but won’t knock you off your chair.” Sounds like a good beverage to be enjoyed with a tasty burger to me.
You can get a bottle of Cheeseburger Red here for $12.99. Cheeseburger sold separately.
