The Wine You Should Be Drinking:
Marta and James, you know, your neighbors with the “sophisticated palate” always brag about the interesting wines they drink. But they probably haven’t feasted on this Walla Walla Bordeaux blend before, so make sure you tell them about how good it is to score some extra points.
And you won’t even be lying, because these are seriously delicious drops. Not as deep and dark as its Californian counterparts, this wine is lively, fresh and fruity. There’s depth, but not for depths sake – and it makes for a really interesting wine that will pair excellently with almost anything you’re putting on the BBQ once spring arrives. Marta and James will approve.
And that’s why this is a wine you should be drinking.
