Pour Your Consideration

You're about to win Best in Show at the annual Westminster Drinking Club 12-Pack Potluck.

Who says a great 12-pack has to consist of beer? When you plop this mixed case of Wellington summer whites on the picnic table of honor, not even the hippest, hoppiest, craftiest brew will be able to stand up to it.

You've got the bright, nervy 2010 Chardonnay, with fruity and floral flavors harmonizing into a complex, vibrant white a million miles away from the same old Chard. You've got the thick and rich 2010 Roussanne, dryer than British wit. You've got the smooth, crisp 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, enlivened with a peachy splash of Viognier. And last but hardly least, presenting The Duchess, a white blend draped in robes of citrus and acidity.

Best of all, you've got three bottles of each one of these typically brilliant Wellington whites. This 12-pack might not be as easy to carry as a 12-pack of beer, but when it comes to which is easier to drink, well, there's no competition.
