Wine for the Cool Dad

I'm a cool dad.gifPsst… Sunday is Father’s Day. You haven’t forgotten, have you? It’s okay if you have. It’s okay if you haven’t. We’re going to make both scenarios even better for you with a bottle or two of wine. But it’s not just any wine. It’s cool wine. (And really food-friendly, which is the best part, especially if your dad likes food. He probably does. All dads like food.)

grounded.gifCharles Smith Wines is a line that re-imagines what a table wine really is. Kind of like when your Dad re-imagined your usual punishments and instead of being grounded for a week, you were forced to hug your little sister every morning until the end of the school year. Only, with Charles Smith Wines, you’re not being punished. You’re being rewarded. Dad.gif

The idea behind Charles Smith Wines is that many people don’t want to wait for their wine to age. They want to drink it the day they buy it, but they still want it to taste like they aged it. That, my friends, is what Charles Smith has mastered in these food-friendly, awesomely labeled wines.

Eve Chardonnay smells as good as it tastes with notes of pear, tangerine and guava. Get this one if Dad is a grilled fish or crab kind of guy. Kung Fu Girl Riesling shows delicious citrus and medium body with a subtle sweetness that pairs well with Chinese take-out and hors d’oeuvres. But if you’re looking for something darker, try The Velvet Devil Merlot with BBQ, beef or pork. This one exhibits dark cherry, blackberry, cedar and tobacco flavors. Find these and the Boom Boom Syrah (dark color, vibrant flavors, great with lamb) at your local ABC Fine Wine & Spirits store today, each for under $15.

Happy Father’s Day to all the wine lovin’ dads out there! Cheers!
