I’m in love with two new wines. They’re both big reds, but personality wise, they’re about as different as you can get.
The boisterous one makes me want to dance. It’s a get off your butt and show your moves kind of wine. The sophisticated one makes me want to… well, I can’t say it here. But you can guess.
Angel Vine Primitivo 2010
$19.75 in any 12 bottle order or build a case
A spunky and exuberant Washington red with a boisterous personality. So easy to love, it’s all about the fruit – cherry, raspberry, strawberry, and plum, with a dark earthy note adding depth. Primitivo is genetically equivalent to Zinfandel.
Ellanelle Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
$32.80 in any 12 bottle order or build a case
Elegant, balanced, impeccable. Glass staining dense purple color. A heady swirl of classic Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon – sophistication and heft combined. Creamy black cherry and a “pop” of red cherry in a lush fruit conserve tinged with licorice, and sweet oak. Supple and smooth, finishes with lingering black fruit and earth. Delicious right out of the bottle or cellar for a few years. A real find, highly recommended.
I think you’ll love these two reds – one for casual, one for dress, both delicious.
