Red, white and… not blue :D

On this particularly beautiful Independence Day weekend, HubbyDoug and I decided to try something new. It’s a chill weekend, which we purposely decided to keep relaxed; no superbig plans, just a come-what-may vibe.

To celebrate, we found a 2013 Ghost Pines Red Winemaker’s Blend. Combining Zinfandel, Cab Sauv, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Syrah, and Primitivo, this wine was so complex and flavorful, even from the first  waft of the bouquet. Hints of lush blackberry jam on the nose, with rich blueberry compote and a cinnamon finish on the palate made this wine one of the most intriguing sips I’ve experienced in a very long time.

With a bottle this nice, we didn’t need fireworks.

I hope you all have a safe and happy July 4th!
