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.
Tamarack Cellars’s full-flavored Firehouse Red is a blend of nine different Washington State-grown grapes. After they’ve spent about 16 months mingling and mellowing in barrels, they mimic the experience of a true Bordeaux: traditional berry flavors and just enough bitter tannin, with some vanilla oak undertones.
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.
