Made by a husband and wife team in San Diego, California, Darkstar is a bold move and we’re glad they did it. Styled like a full-bodied Lambrusco, this wine is effervescent, dark red, and dry. This wine is a charcuterie board’s dream, with plush tannins to tenderize the proteins, and velvet scrubbing bubbles to clean the pallet. Serve well-chilled at any point in the meal. This could be sipped with the apps, paired with the main course, or enjoyed on its own after dinner. The carbonation cleanses in a way that makes this wine endlessly sippable.
This should flow liberally with a charcuterie plate with all the salty, sweet, and creamy goodness. Also, Thanksgiving.
