Here is my official Southern Bourbon Mountains Valentine's Wishlist
Listen, I love jewelry as much as the next girl but you can't drink it and it doesn't coarse through your veins and send you to happy town quite like a nice red does. Massages are great but as soon as you get home and smacked in the face with a hot wheel the relaxation is over. Flowers are WAY overpriced (but not on any other day of the year) and I don't think a BMW X5 is in the budget this year. Wine is the way to a woman's heart. (Or at least an almost 37 year old working mom of two crazies heart)
The Leese Fitch Cab is my go-to Monday-Friday. For $9.99 it's perfect to take the edge off the witching hour and to settle in watching The Man in the High Castle. (Don't know what that show is? WATCH IT!!)
Waccamaw and Willowlake are from the Banshee family and at $14.99 and $24.99 are a nice bottle to bring to a friend's house so they think you are in the upper middle class instead of living with wall to wall carpet.
I wrote a LONG blog post way back in the day about Chateauneuf du Pape. We visited there when we went to France in 2008 and Vieux Telegraphe was a favorite. You can read that post here.
Most of these wines can be purchased from my dear friends at the WineStore in Charlotte. They have several locations but we typically buy from Matt at Blakeney or Matt at Southpark. They ship too!
So Max, here you go. I'd like a case so you can mix in 8 Leese Fitch with a Telegraphe, a Willowlake and 2 Waccamaws.
Have any new favorite reds I should try?
