that makes him look like the Brawny paper towel man?

Basic RGB


It’s Wine Thursday!

our weekly good-wine-at-a-good-price

that-you-can-find recommendation. 


 In the spirit of the phrase,

“life’s too short to drink boring wine”

our Wine Thursday! recommendation

is anything but. 


 It’s not everyday

when you come across a wine

that is a blend of

Sangiovese and

Zinfandel and

Malbec and








Yes, Blaufrankish.

Abbot’s Table is the result

 of that unique red grape coming together 

with three more mainstream varietals

to create one interesting blend. 

 It’s big, spicy and OK on it’s own.

But Abbot’s Table improves with food. 


Before the holidays hit…and bring with them

turkey and ham and stuffing and pumpkin pie…

there’s still time to squeeze in some BBQ. 


Abbot’s Table would be a great match with smoky, savory ribs. 


  We found Abbot’s Table

at Fred Meyer for $19.99,

QFC for $20.99,

and at New Seasons and Whole Foods for $22.99.
