We celebrate this outdoor activity that combines history, exercise, excitement adventure, possible treasure! and no harm to anyone or anything. So, I asked Andy, a Metal Detectorists himself! which wine pairs with all that:
And he said: "Pardon My French" from Treasure Hunter
Walla Walla, Washington Red Blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot, 22% Cabernet Franc (240 Cases Produced)
Winery Tasting Notes: More brilliant than ten Einstein’s in a lighthouse and as powerful as Ajax’s red right hand, this wine is awash with layers of warm black plum, black cherry, blackcurrants, crème de cassis, and Indian spices. Softer flavors of white-cake, tobacco leaf, and toasted sage and rosemary are all knit together with fine-grained tannins to deliver a harmonious and enduring epiphany of flavor and righteous mouthfeel. This violet elixir is like a Tesla Coil, pulsing with potential and vitality. The power and poetry of nature entwine beautifully in this wine. It’s just straight up f&%$*#g delicious and that’s why we call it, Pardon My French.
Andy, The Detectorist, adds Pardon My French is smooth with black fruit, leather peppery notes and hint of earth TO THE DETECTORIST IN US ALL!
