Happy Scandalous Thursday!! There are two episodes left of Scandal before the winter finale. I absolutely live for Thursdays. I know you will agree with me, when I say that last week’s episode showed what a true gladiator Abby remains to be. In honor of Abby, tonight’s wine choice is Coppola Diamond Collection Claret. Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Coppola’s Claret typically includes some combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. They harvest grapes from their own estate as well as other Napa, Sonoma and El Dorado vineyards. This combination of climates results in great complexity and exquisite balance. It’s a premium wine at a popular price and it has set the bar for the quality of the entire brand. The bottle is distinguished with gold netting in order to convey its prestigious status, a tribute to the way Europe’s finest wines were once presented.
