2013 Banana Slug Red
This wine is a rather (mostly) conservative blend of traditional Bordelais grape varieties, (with a few piquant additions). The Banana Slug Red, produced by Bonny Doon Vineyard, (just doon the road from UCSC), is the perfect complement to robust, hearty carnivorous fare, best consumed in moderation, to be sure. But one should be anything but moderate in support of beauty, harmony, felicity and vision! The proceeds of the sales of this wine benefit in part the students in the Arts at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Go, Slugs!
