The movie "Sideways" came out in 2004 and had a profound effect on the direction of wine drinking in mainstream America. It introduced many of us to Pinot Noir and to seek out new types of grapes. It also made fun of the over-commercialized, over-produced and now much-maligned Merlot grape. But 12 years have passed since then, and just like a Super Hero in an epic Sci-Fi thriller, the mighty Merlot grape is making a magnificent comeback onto wine lists, into various red wine blends, and back into prominence in our wine glasses. So tonight we are hosting a powerful purple "Welcome Back" party for Merlot and all the wonderful flavors it brings to our enjoyment of wine. Come revel in the ceremonial return of one of wine's underappreciated workhorses - Merlot. Reservations are appreciated to join this welcome back sampling and can be made by calling or clicking 813-879-2931.
