Wine Picks for New Seasonal Residents:
Getting to know your new roommates: Nothing says “lets loosen up and get to know each other” like a magnum of vaguely described wine. The bottom shelf “California Burgandy – Franciscan” 4L $32. Chances are this wine is a blend from all the bottom of the barrels in the California wine country, but is does the trick.
Meet and Greet Potluck: Show up looking sophisticated but not pretentious with a sleek bottle of the Copper Moon Shiraz. Only $9! Fill the awkward silence, should it arise, by explaining to fellow guests that these grapes are said to be harvested under the moonlight to capture the essence of a mysterious night. Plum, berries and spice in this wine make for a great pairing with pastas, pizza or steak.
Quiet Dark Creepy Fall Night Around a Gas Fireplace: Break out a bottle of the reasonably priced and good go-to, Painted Turtle Merlot $13 BC. Yes, merlot is cool again! Pour a glass of some deep dark cherries and sit back and watch the rain turn to snow.
