The air is getting crisper and that means red wine time in my home. Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi does not disappoint with their “Harvest Blend” wine; a delicious spiced red which will having you crave the fall more and more. I tasted such delicious hints of cinnamon; it was the perfect combination of sweet and spice and while I drank it room temperature it would be amazing heated up a little bit in your crock pot. By visiting http://woodbridgewines.com you can check out their great “Harvest Spiced Punch” which uses the harvest blend as a base. I simply must post the yummy recipe in the hopes that you will make it for Thanksgiving in your home:
