Tonights writing companion is Neil Diamond's LP Shilo, it really sets the mood when he sings Red, Red wine… Anyway, this month we are serving up the Zellerbach Winery Merlot, a wine I am prone to keeping on hand at my home since we brought it in a couple months back. This super approachable red is not overly dry or sweet, but lands right in that near perfect middle of fruit forward flavors of cherry and raspberry, with aromas of cedar and raisins and a finish of spicy dark chocolate. I drank it with some homemade chicken, veggie & rice soup; but I think pairing it with lighter meats like lamb or pork would be superb.

**If you missed the post on Facebook, Twitter, and this here website, we will be sampling out the Wine of the Month this Friday, and we are now offering a 10% discount on any 12 bottle case of wine, mix'n'match or solid, because everybody needs a case of wine, always. Party on Wayne! Party on Garth!**
