Wine and The Woods
By Leslie D. Soule
Since my Fallenwood books take place in a forest setting much of the time, when I saw the bottle of Forestville 2011 Malbec for only four dollars, I knew I had to have it.
Peter Mayle wrote an excellent book titled A Good Year, which was then made into a movie starring Russell Crowe and which is, to date, my favorite chick flick. Well in the book, a wine class takes place, and the students compare the wine to "...everything, in essence, except grapes." So I shall try this exercise, and say that the wine has a bold, fruit flavor with notes of cinnamon and tastes like it would pair well with brie. It also tastes like something I'd be pleased to drink as I sit around a campfire, telling stories to a band of elves.
(Here we see Elrond, Lord of Rivendell, about to get his drink on...)
Make of that what you will. This wine gets my stamp of approval.
