December Drinking Tip #6: THE LIGHTER SIDE OF RED
More and more people are embracing traditional-style red wines. They’re less rich, less showy and less tiring on the palate than today’s big selling Shiraz and Malbec wines. You get a hit of refreshment and a lighthearted feeling. Down to earthy stuff for everyday meals. And wine that you can drink all evening. Pinot Noir.
Wine geeks might say that Rothschild’s wine is not very Pinot-ish, and they’d be right. But it is a bright, lively wine with a good-buddy feeling. Welcome company on most evenings. And a good choice to put out with the holiday turkey.
