Depending on where you live, fall is a transitional season. Growing up on the East Coast, I think of fallen leaves, gray skies, and just a hint of woodsmoke in the air. The air is cooling and the winter is coming. Dinner plates are moving from the summer’s harvest to root vegetables and spices. For me, this is the time for my favorite category of wines—light reds. Forget the rosé crazed people... It's all about light reds. It's not that these wines are big on flavor. They just tend to have a youthful snap in their step. They are friendly, fun, and filled with interesting flavors that pair perfectly with seasonal dishes.
(Pst, you can shop this beautiful red blend on Club W.)
