    Wine Review - 2013 Beyerskloof Pinotage: Not So Nutty South African Red

    This was a late in the show NSLC Port of Wines Festival selection. Palates were exhausted and there wasn't enough bread to bring it back. We knew we wanted to hit the South Africa table before we left and we wanted to find a Pinotage to take home. Well, mission accomplished with the Beyerskloof Pintoage ($18.49 locally).

And the Rhône can be very strong, when it’s the right people making the wine.

      … having the right temp for both Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The zombies probably want Pinot Noir for eating human flesh (I read that somewhere else, really) so don't stock up on Pinot as that will just make your fortification a zombie magnet. Find wines to go with whatever kill you have, road or otherwise. Nothing too heavy that will slow you down as sunset nears. Maybe lay in a Tawny Port to go with Twinkies in case Woody Harrelson shows up. Use this for a glass: from etsy.com With a bottle of this: from chateaud.com…
