Nantucket Red

nantucket red wine

We visited the holy trinity of alcohol while we were on Nantucket this summer, also known as Cisco Brewers, Nantucket Vineyards and Triple Eight Distillery.

While I was a fan of the Grey Lady Ale, the wine (quelle surprise) was my favorite. This bottle is the best of the bunch and because you can’t get it off island, I am giving serious consideration to purchasing a 1/2 case or so to lay in for the winter months.

It would remind you of a beaujolais. Very bright, a little on the softer side, but very drinkable with sandwiches, oily fish like bluefish or bass, definately lamb and also vegetarian dishes.

Good grapes!
