Music and Wine should be paired. Both can transport you to another time, place or memory. When you think of heavy metal music, wine is not the first thing that comes to mind. However, I invite you to open your mind up to Illusions by Tempting Fate and your palate up to Portugal's Douro Reds Darkest full-bodied red wines. Try Quinta De Ventozelo Reserva Douro, 2009 or Quinta Do Vale Meao Meandro, 2006.
You will find the pairing to be surprisingly smooth and both music and wine complementing each other quite well. Wines from the Douro are considered to be among the most elegant reds of Portugal and styled similarly to the elegant wines of Bordeaux. Turn the lights off, grab a glass or three of Douro's Darkest Reds and let the music rock you to your core.
