It’s said that only two things are certain in life: death and taxes. They also say, “Life is too short to drink cheap wine.” But if you've been hit especially hard by the tax man this year, you may have to drink cheap wine, at least temporarily. With that in mind, we have chosen some inexpensive but still delicious wines that are just perfect with a steady diet of cocina pobre.
On the other hand, some of us are lucky enough to be breaking even this year, while others will be rejoicing over a big, fat refund check. For the break-even crowd, we have chosen a couple of wonderful and reasonably priced “mid-range” wines, a term that refers to price, not flavor. If there’s a large sum coming your way, go ahead and splurge on a bottle that you may have considered out of your reach. Buy a bottle, cook up a storm, and celebrate that special combination of wise planning and good luck that makes tax day a reason to party rather than grieve. Whatever your fortune, Happy Tax Day!
