This is a fastball over the plate. Nothing says comfort food on a chilly autumn night like hearty bolognese over thick noodles and a glass of velvety Trefethen merlot.

Gnocchi with Frizzled Prosciutto & Blue Cheese
I’ve got a good one to share with you today guys – Gnocchi with Frizzled Prosciutto and Blue Cheese! Plus, it’ll pair perfectly with Merlot – which is being celebrated throughout the month of October as part of the third annual #MerlotMe event.

Merlot And Roasted Rosemary Pork Chops
One simple conclusion of the #MerlotMe tasting. Sure, I like complex blends and trying off the beaten path varietals, but a good, fruit-forward Merlot is a happy thing to have in the glass. I naturally think of Merlot with meat, but one thing that struck me doing these pairings is how good Merlot was with the cheeses we had.

Wine, Butter & Herb-Roasted Mushrooms
About the title of my post: Fungi, Fun Guy, & Two Napa Valley Merlots. I decided to pair the wines with earthier, meaty flavors and settled on mushrooms because I didn't have any truffles. That's the 'fungi' part. The other 'fun guy', well, that's my Love. Our mini boys are off on a Fall Break adventure with my parents. So, Jake and I were able to head outside for a backyard picnic this past weekend.
