Can anyone else believe that August is almost over?! I feel like I blinked and the summer started and ended. With September comes Pumpkin Spice Lattés, falling leaves, hockey season, and the summer coming to an end. You better believe I’ll be soaking up as much as I can!
One of my favorite things to do in August and September is sit on my front porch with my girlfriends and enjoy a glass of wine. We can catch up, gossip, and talk about what’s going on in each other’s lives. The temps are starting to go down so it’s prime porch weather.
Our go-to wines are JaM Cabernet and JaM Butter Chardonnay. JaM Cellars makes such good wine and we love having a bottle of each handy in case we can’t decide on a color!
Since yesterday was #InternationalCabernetDay, let’s start by talking about JaM Cab. The JaM Cab has blackberries, black plums, black currant, cassis, and more. Who doesn’t love a fruity Cab during the summer?! Harvested at perfect ripeness and made in the tradition of great Californian winemaking, JaM Cab bursts with lush berries on the nose and palate. Aging is a unique blend of new oak that smoothes the wine and adds a lingering touch of vanilla to the finish.
The JaM Cab is great with a pan of brownies or some dark chocolate. Two of my favorite things!
If your girlfriends want chilled white wine for summer, open a bottle of the Butter Chardonnay. The Butter Chardonnay is rich, bold, and luscious. Made in the tradition of quality Californian winemaking, the grapes are juicy, ripe, and bursting with flavor.
I love Chardonnay with a fruit and cheese plate. Maybe add some charcuterie!
JaM cold ferments this easy-to-love Chardonnay to a lush creaminess and ages it in our unique blend of oak. Butter brims with stone fruit and baked-lemon notes and has a lovely, long, vanilla finish. Simply put, it melts in your mouth!
Girl’s night on the porch is the absolute best. We save money by staying in and it’s more comfortable than sitting in a restaurant. My front porch has a porch swing, twinkle lights, and comfy chairs so it’s perfect to settle in for a long chat with my girlfriends. There’s nothing better!
