Remember how cool the Pink Panther was? If you recall, he only said one line in all of the episodes while he was outwitting the bumbling Inspector Clouseau.

Well, this wine captures that savoir fare of the PP, and maybe you should have that music playing in the background as you serve and imbibe of this concoction.

Pink, that in itself is something that makes you look at it. I've had Pinot Grigios mixed with Chardonnay (Ecco Domani) that were off the hook, and for the sake of my taste buds, just had to pick this up.

I split this bottle with a chef friend of mine, while enjoying sitting out on the patio in a nice cool breeze, just talking about life. At the end of a rough week, it was a delightful pick me up, and it made me wish that I had brought more than one bottle.

Fruity and with a nice aroma, it goes down nice, and leaves you wanting for more. Since the alcohol is not too high, it also allows you to grab a little more, without have to worry about being buzzed or tipsy. And for the price, it's a winner.
