Three Shows to Binge this April

 (and the wines you’ll want to drink with them!)

Wine is equal parts art and pleasure. We love to curl up with a great bottle and just RELAX. Let’s be honest; we can’t all do that in the south of France, so today, we’ve got a line-up of shows that will sweep you away and the wines that complement them!

RIPLEY

This 8-part series is based on the novel “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” and Andrew Scott’s version of Tom Ripley is equal parts sinister con man and socially awkward poser. Dakota Fanning and Johnny Flynn ground Dickie and Marge in a way that Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow are just too beautiful to pull off… the REAL beauty of this show is the cinematography and the STAR? Atrani, Italy. She is lovely, she is grace, and she will make you want a bottle of wine.

THE WINE:

Casale della Ioria Espero Olivella Nera. one-of-a-kind wine. Dynamic, spicy, and so fresh, and enjoyable. The palate is juicy, with amazing acidity and tannins to match, full of fresh tart fruits, Sichuan pepper, cinchona bark, purple flowers, and small, lovely blackberries. It is very expressive and very delicious. Put on your best linen pants and languidly lounge with this gorgeous bottle.

SUGAR

What Ripley is to Atrani, Sugar is to LA. This neo-noir starring Colin Farrel offers up mystery and style in equal measure. He plays mysterious and oddly sweet Private Eye John Sugar, who is investigating the mysterious disappearance of Olivia Siegel, the beloved granddaughter of a Hollywood legend. Now, Sugar has to figure out what exactly happened to Olivia while he also unearths family secrets the Siegels believed to be long buried. This series makes LA oddly timeless, with vintage cars and old-fashioned manners dropped into an idealized version of modern-day LA.

THE WINE:

What better to cozy up to this murder mystery with than a bottle of California red? It suits all the dark bars and Hollywood glam perfectly. Pax Wines Grenache Syrah Mourvedre is layered and exotic and loaded to the brim with lavender, herbs, flowers, and fruit. Dense and concentrated but not thick and syrupy. Zesty and unmistakably delicious.

THE GENTLEMAN

Eddie Horniman (Theo James), suddenly inherits an estate and the title of Duke of Halstead after his father’s death. But Eddie eventually learns that the land has become part of a weed-growing empire run by Bobby Glass (Ray Winstone). Now, Eddie must navigate the world of dangerous and eccentric criminals who all want a piece of the growing empire as he tries to protect his home and stay alive.

THE WINE:

This show, which is full of criminals and misdeeds, needs to go with an equally rebellious and badly behaved wine. Karnage Lilian Laklande Blanc is a bold skin-contact Auxerrois from Bas Rhin, France. The grapes here are hand-harvested and see 3-weeks of whole bunch maceration. The result is textured and opulent orchard fruit that comes in like a gentleman but then surprises you with a punch in the face of flavor and lushness.
