Meet RUA – the passion project of my friends Maire & Walt. This is an incredibly good buy at $36 a bottle. $36 is special occasion stuff for me and likely for you, too, but don’t be intimidated. They offer discounts etc – as outlined here – http://ruared.com/connector.php – so you might be able to get yourself a few bottles for less than the $36 per. Why not consider buying 6 bottles at once and get a break in the price? Then you have them around for special occasions and even for gifts!
This a terrific, full-bodied red that I could drink with anything I cook, including, contrary to bunkus customs, fish. While I would call myself a wino, I would not call myself an expert on anything about wine except that I know what I like – and I love this stuff. The site listed above will probably answer any questions you have better than I can. I hope you try it out!
PS – Maire & Walt also happen to be behind this little bit of genius:
