Bottle of White, Bottle of Red
REAL SIMPLE SAYS...
"When you can’t decide between red and white, have both. This Oregon chardonnay is aged in oak but has plenty of minerality so it doesn’t taste too sweet. Its partner in crime, a red blend from Washington, goes down smooth with berry notes."
A bottle of red, a bottle of white? It all depends upon your appetite. (Or so we’ve heard.)
Ah, the power of good wine and good company. It’s true: Reminiscing about sweet romantic teenage nights? Always better with a big glass of red. Got a good job, got a good office? Clink glasses of white to celebrate. The family’s fine? Pour a few rounds of your latest you-have-to-try-it favorite.
So we’ve assembled this gift bag as the perfect one-two: a cool, buttery white and a full-bodied red.
St. Innocent's Freedom Hill is fermented entirely in French oak barrels for 11 months. A little West Coast richness with some Burgundy-esque minerality means we can’t stop drinking this beauty.
Forlorn Hope's Suspiro del Moro, or "the Moor's sigh," pays homage to the Alvarelhão grape's origins in the Iberian Peninsula, once the kingdom of the Moors. Fermented in whole clusters with native yeast, this red is super aromatic with notes of luscious red and dark fruit, tropical fruit and spice. It's lightweight, juicy and complex.
A bottle of red, a bottle of white, whatever kind of mood you’re in tonight. These crowd-pleasers are guaranteed to bring a Mouth serious joy.
*Editor’s note: Yes, we’ve got a few Mouths here who were actually around in 1977, when Billy Joel’s “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant” was released. Go figure. Thanks for indulging us.
