Cinemavino — Throne for a Loop

Well, the savage quest for the Iron Throne has come to a fairly underwhelming end.  We have a ruler for Meh-steros.  Now an important question faces us all:  What the hell do we do now?  I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been listening to a lot of Dido to kinda mellow out.

For this episode, we discuss what to binge in a post-Thrones world.  Also, we pick out a few wines to enjoy during your couch-bound marathon.  First, we’ve got the rosé from Gobelsburg, an Austrian wine with the classic grapes of Pinot Noir, Zwiegelt, and St. Laurent bundled into one lean, crisp, and completely refreshing bottle.  Next, we venture down to South Africa for Radley and Finch rosé.  Not only does it have a clear reference to Harper Lee’s masterwork, which was subsequently turned into a cinematic classic, it’s also part of their summer series.  It’s just part of our wine-drinking existence:  The weather warms up, and the wines cool down.  The Radley and Finch is brawnier, with more bottom-heavy fruit flavors.  If you’re looking for some oomph on a budget, this is your dude.

(A note:  Starting next week, Cinemavino will return its regular Sunday nights.)
