One thing I love about Fossil & Fawn is their labels. And since this wine doesn’t have a name (well ok “Oregon Red Wine” I guess but that’s a snoozefest) I dub it Alien Juice.
Fossil & Fawn 2018 Oregon Red Wine aka Alien Juice
First of all, this is one blend from outer space: 50% Muller-Thurgau, 25% Pinot Noir, and 25% Marechal “What The” Foch. The 100% carbonic part means the wine is made employing a technique you’d find, say, in Beaujolais that gives the juice a gushingly fruity nature.
This is most definitely a wine to chill. I think I watched football on a weekend afternoon while drinking the F&F AJ. Would recommend any low-key Saturday/Sunday activity. Kind of makes me think of this song by Small Faces:
This video is bonkers, BTW.
Lazy Sunday afternoon
I’ve got no mind to worry
I close my eyes and drift away
Yup, that sounds about right.
Purchased at Thirst Wine Merchants in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
