April is almost over. How did that happen?
Before we run out of time, let’s talk about wine. This month’s delicious, affordable wine is a syrah from Sterling Vineyards.
I love syrah. It’s bold, but balanced. It’s versatile without being boring. (Sometimes, secretly, I think it might be the perfect cheap wine. Don’t tell.)
I also love Sterling Vineyards. Next time you’re in California’s Sonoma Valley, hop on a gondola and take a tour. It’s not the cheapest winery in the area, but the views from the top are spectacular.
When it comes to this type of wine, we don’t discriminate. We sip shiraz (from Australia) or syrah (from the U.S., or France if you’re feeling fancy) at least once a week. I’ll definitely be featuring more syrahs in the future. But for only about $10 a bottle, Sterling is a great place to start.
Stay tuned in May for a sure sign that spring is here: a white wine of the month!
