Happy Scandalous Thursday to all my wine lovers! I absolutely love the direction Scandal is going this season. Each character is bringing more drama and suspense each and every Thursday! I applaud the writers for keeping us tuned in and sitting on the edge of our seats. I don’t know about you, but on Thursdays, the phone is off, television volume is on high and my glass is filled with the wine pick of the week. Tonight’s choice is Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Diamond Red Blend. While it’s Claret is a red blend crafted in the style of a Bordeaux, their new Diamond Red Blend, is a unique “sky’s the limit” kind of blend, created exclusively by taste with no particular roadmap in mind. Made from a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, this wine offers true distinction. The Diamond Red Blend is rich, warm, and velvety on the palate. I hope you enjoy tonight’s episode of Scandal, and also enjoy the wine pick of the week! Cheers!
