We've collected some recommendations for your holiday celebrations tomorrow. Have a great Fourth of July weekend!
Broadbent 10 Year Malmsey Madeira (Madeira, Portugal)
"There is one wine that surely must be the choice for the fourth of July - Madeira. Madeira is the wine that was used by the Founding Father's to Toast the Declaration of Independence." (via IntoWine)
2009 Marchesi Mazzei Philip (Tuscany, Italy)
“Celebrate vinously with the 2009 Philip, an elegant, concentrated Tuscan cabernet sauvignon made by Marchesi Mazzei to honor ancestor Philip Mazzei, a friend and ally of Thomas Jefferson.” (via Newsday)
2013 Etude Pinot Noir Rosé (Napa, California)
"The 2013 Etude Pinot Noir Rosé comes from the Grace Benoist Ranch in the Carneros region... This is the rosé you want with grilled chicken legs rubbed with jerk seasoning or hot paprika and a side of coleslaw." (via NJ.com)
2013 Division Winemaking Co. "Villages" Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley, Oregon)
“Fresh and vivid, it’s very easy drinking, very like a light Beaujolais with a bright snap of acidity. Pour this one with grilled sausages or a burger.” (via LA Times)
