Wine: Avalon California Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine Spectator Score: None
Where I Bought It: Prego Again on 17th Street (um, can we talk about that name for a wine store?)
Why I Bought It: The little wine store label said it got an 88 rating, but of course when I looked closer it was from some random wine website I'd never heard of.
What I Ate With It: Nada - this was a "drinking while doing arts and crafts" wine
Review: A+! Tim said this wine will be a staple for us, so I think I'll be returning to Prego Again (really I need to ask them what that name means). I feel like it can be easier to enjoy a less expensive wine when you pair it with food since you have another flavor to distract yourself with, so I was impressed that I liked this so much on its own.
PS - that is apparently my idea of an artsy photo after I've been drinking. Because the cable box makes for such a beautiful background...
