Cheers! Thursday is National Cabernet Day, paying tribute to the full-bodied and fruity cabernet sauvignon. For local oenophiles and occasional imbibers, that is a reason to celebrate.
And, yes, we want to have fun but won't that wine be just a bit more satisfying if there's a deal to be had? Of course, it will. Tahlia Fischer, a local distributor for Wine Warehouse, helped us track down some local deals to enjoy on the big day.
