Many thanks to Andrew of Spittoon who is hosting this iteration of WBW, with the theme "Just Seven Words." Andrew asked us to choose an Italian red, any Italian red, and put our tasting notes into just 7 words that are grammatically correct.

My 7 words:

Riding horses through eucalyptus and berry fields.

    Well said. The visual you've created sounds like quite a few Sangiovese dominant wines I've tried.

    Excellent work, Megan. Expressive, precise, even artful.

    That's a fine super-Tuscan! Here's another seven words fer ya: It's a thoughtful aristocrat offering artful structure.

    I had a fun time with this WBW. In fact, I did the same wine twice!

    looks like you enjoyed the sangiovese blended with a bit of cab providing some eucalyptus notes. I like that your 7 words are action oriented.

    Thanks everyone for the comments!

    Andrew, definitely riding, galloping evokes too much horse sweat :)
