This blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault tastes of strawberries with a little acidity and soft flavors. Went well with a hearty white bean salad.
We were excited to discover that wine.com was finally delivering to Pennsylvania, a state overrun with ridiculous liquor laws. Recently we took advantage of a free shipping deal at wine.com and ordered an entire case.
We found that the selection of wines is huge, although for the most part, only large-scale producers’ wines or collectibles are available. (We couldn’t find any of our favorite Sonoma Pinot Noir producers, for example.) There are also some good value brands available, such as the Cristalino Brut Cava priced at $7.99. It wasn’t amazing but it was a solid deal for a pleasant bottle of bubbly.
We ordered a mixed case and it only took about a week for it to be delivered. All of the wines arrived safely and came with handy bottle tags to keep track of the wines. Already on the tags are the name, vintage, order date, price, and relevant ratings. There is also space for you to write in any notes to help you remember whether or not you want to buy it again.
If you want to order from wine.com we recommend ordering during cooler months so that your wines don’t get scorched or frozen. Also try to look out for free shipping deals because it could cut the cost of your order considerably.

Check out Tasting Table, a free daily email geared towards adventurous foodies. One of my virtual foodie friends, Joy Manning, just announced her new position as senior editor so you know it’s bound to be a good read! Today, the national edition is featuring a article on French champagnes and the People section profiles a seaweed farmer in Maine. I hope a Philadelphia version is developed soon.
