Red wine to pass time

By Becca Zidik
As the weather gets chillier, and signs of fall are making appearances, staying inside starts to sound like a perfect pastime. And what better way to spend time inside than with a glass of ruby red Merlot from Estancia Vineyards. A glass in your hand while enjoying the changing temperatures in a rocking chair overlooking Killington Mountain doesn’t sound like a bad time. Hailing from theBecca Zidik_Header Central Coast of California, this Merlot mimics the changing seasons. The bold flavors of raspberry, blackberry, pepper, and cacao are attributed to the cooler growing conditions of the region. The climate resembles every PSL lovers dream season…fall, fall and fall!

If you’re not really into the changing seasons, and not quite ready to say good-bye to summer, there’s Truchard Chardonnay. Established in 1974, the Truchard Vineyards have been a staple of Napa Valley, specifically the Carneros region. With its lush, diverse soil over continuous acres, intense afternoon heat, and years of perfecting the craft, Truchard Vineyards is high on the list for prestigious summer wine. And let us tell you, it is oh-so fine! The Chard packs a punch and comes in hot with green apples, honeysuckle, and toasted oak. A fruity enchantment that would add spark to any chicken dish!
