“There are three wants which can never be satisfied; that of the rich wanting more, that of the sick, wanting something different, and that of the traveler, who says, “anywhere but here.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
For the Wine Harlots, the perfect summer is a share by the beach, a good book and a bottle (or two) of easy drinking wine. Forget all those florid sightseers crowding into museums and cafés. Summer is the time to relax and unwind – and plan for autumn trips after the tourists depart.
The Double Decker Zinfandel is a tasty summer wine. With an easy-access screw cap it’s ripe for picnics or any impromptu events where you might have forgotten a corkscrew. With easy drinking flavors of blackberries and fresh raspberry jam just off the stove it’s an easy pairing for a burger or barbeque. The music match is “Anywhere But Here” from SafetySuit from the album Life Left to Go.
The details: 13.5% alcohol. Screw-cap closure. Appellation: California. Varietal: zinfandel. Suggested retail $10 USD, soon to be available direct from Double Decker or use the Wine Finder to find a purveyor near you. The wine was provided by Wente as a sample.
