The time is wine, my Auburn friends!
We’re hosting an Auburn National Championship watch party tonight, complete with this O’Lillo Red Blend. Yes, I know that’s a hawk instead of an eagle, but after a half an hour gathering half of Hazel’s staff to find either an orange/blue label including either a tiger/eagle, we all were happy to complete our quest with the beautifully embossed label of O’Lillo, & I’ve heard it’s exquisite! I love the vinter’s description : ” Beautiful ruby red colour. Traditional in its complexity, roundness, & elegance, yet modern in its intense fruitiness, accessibility, & soft tannins. Ruby colour, with scents of varietal flavours.”
Stay tuned to see how the party unfolded! Next to my wine of choice, I’ll be wearing my lucky scarf, lucky shirt, & next to our handmade decor & blue/orange hors d’oeuvres, Blaise will be making some sort of lucky burger (like these Fried Green Tomato Sliders) to cheer on Auburn in the Rose Bowl. Wish us luck, & Warrrrrrrrr Eagle!
