Weekly Wine Picks and an added Beer Break
Wine Pick #1: 2008 Rodney Strong Sonoma County Chardonnay
Reason: Repeat after me in your best fake New York accent, “It’s like a stick ‘a butta.” The varietal scored 88 points in Wine Spectator. The strong, fruit forward buttery sensation will have you licking popcorn off of a movie theater floor. It’s just that good.
Spotted: $4 off with your Harris Teeter VIC Card
Value Add: $15.00
Wine Pick #2: 2006 Columbia Valley Boomtown Cabernet Sauvignon from Dusted Valley Vintners
Reason: Because you like that boom, boom, pow! It’s a spicy, red wonder that scored 89 points in Wine Spectator.
Spotted: A hostess gift from nice friends
Value Add: On sale for $13-$15 on most wine retailer sites
Beer Break: Fat Tire Amber Ale brought to you by New Belgium Brewing Co.
Reason: Because your spare tire needs nourishment. Described as having “toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors with fresh hoppiness.” It makes us hoppy!
Spotted: on draft at Cans and most other bars in the Queen City
Value Add: Only $2 at Cans on Wednesdays
