A Strong Cabernet & Lady Red

Happy Thursday, people!

The holidays are upon us, that's a fact. What's also a fact is you're in search for a killer red wine to pair with your meaty dish or to just drink with a loved one while binging Netflix--admit it, your weekends are as boring as you deny. Don't worry, I won't judge ;)

This is where Rodney Strong's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon makes an appearance. It's tartness aren't off-putting and I have a soft spot for Sonoma wines. Unlike that one episode of Netflix's Black Mirror, it won't leave you depressed because technology. You'll find this in most stores for around $15-20 a bottle, pre-tax, with California likely being the cheapest. 

If sweet is on your list, a local Washington bottle makes an appearance. Whidbey's Port Wine is a sweet red that you'll want to enjoy slowly. Pick up this Jessica Chastain-in-a-bottle for around $15-20, pre-tax.

That's it for this week, folks! If you're a fan, and you're not already subscribed, you know what to do (hint: go here and subscribe). Let me know what you think of these picks and if you have favorites of your own, just reply to this email!
