Queen of Hearts

I'll be the first to admit that I know very little about wine. I don't drink the super bargain stuff anymore, but I still think it's silly to spend much more than $10 on a bottle at a grocery store. I'm a sucker for a good label though which is why this Queen of Hearts Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara is my new favorite. Sure, the paying card motif caught my eye (as did the $10 off sign at my local market), but I confirmed it was true love when I realized the heart theme played through on the cork too!Queen of Hearts Pinot NoirThis bottle usually retails for $18.99, but luckily for me Ballard Market had a super deal on it so I snagged a few at $9.99!Pin It

We bought a bottle of red and a bottle of white from Ballard Market for our friends 25th Anniversary party in Ballard. It was a super last-minute gift. They had just come back from a trip to Germany, Austria, and Italy, and we wanted to help them reminisce with some Italian wines. We went with $20-ish wines because we thought it'd be more special. They liked what we picked, but they probably would have liked $10 bottles just as well.

BTW, I received my order and wore my monkey barrette on Tuesday. My boys love the robot cufflinks I got for hubby. The ring was a nice surprise! I'll be ordering again soon!
