Wine deal: Airlie '7'

  • July 27, 2013 - 3:34 PM

The test of a true wine geek:  Sniff and sip the delicious Airlie “7” ($13) and see if you can pick out the Müller-Thurgau and muscat ottonel. They join five other white grapes in giving this Oregon blend its name, not to mention its consistently rich but vibrant, seriously multilayered flavor. The ultimate deck wine with just over 12 percent alcohol, the “7” also pairs nicely with ceviche and barbecued chicken, and is perfect for that Friday night fish fry. Available at Mac’s, Oaks, Skyway, Bacchus, Excelsior Vintage, Up North, Sentyrz, Apollo, McDonald’s and more.
