5 Spooky Paso Robles Wines to Savor this October

It’s October, and the wizards are marching in! Pumpkins, ghosts, skeletons and, in Paso Robles Wine Country, the clinking of wine glasses—usher in the age old tradition of Halloween. This year, trick-or-treating may be discouraged, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go big on decorations, scary movies, and candy. Pair these reds with your favorite fun-sized Snickers and give in to the dark side.

It’s actually kind of eerie how well Paso Robles wines fit into the fall festivities, including the all new virtual wine tasting Hallo-WINE costume party put on by ONX…see below for details!

Devilish charm – Chronic Cellars

Take this red by the horns: With haunting labels emblazoned with undead designs, Chronic Cellars pops out as the perfect visual accompaniment to that plate of spider sugar cookies. This Halloween season, get acquainted with the winery’s 2018 El Perfecto, a mesmerizing blend of zinfandel, tempranillo and petite sirah (you’re sure to spot the handsome red devil on the front of this bottle). Dried candied fruits and cracked pepper prime the palate for magic while sinful cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes entice you to make a deal.

Spice up your night – Bodega de Edgar

Mover over, pumpkin spice latte. Bodega de Edgar’s 2017 La Milla is the most fall-fabulous flavor around. This velvety blend of mourvedre and tempranillo will become your next autumnal obsession thanks to comforting aromas of dark chocolate, leather, cherries and spiced tea. The palate brings in soft tannins, bright acidity, and oodles of baking spices (so no need to turn on the oven). A perfect pairing for a dark chocolate confection or your kid’s candy, it’ll age well into next decade. Waiting ten years to enjoy this wine? Now that’s a scary thought!

Buried pleasure: Dubost Wine

Earthy delights awaken in the night! The skeletons dancing across the label of this Halloween-approved red should tip you off to its rambunctious and darkly delicious nature. One sip of Dubost’s 2013 Vingence and your bones will rattle for more! A grounded blend of tannat, malbec, petite verdot and syrah, this is an inky black sipper made for a cold, dark night. Remember: complexities are to be revealed, level by level. Better get digging.

Candied fun – Penman Springs

Why let the tots hog the sugar rush this Halloween? Swirl a sweetly satisfying libation and prove that the grown ups really do know how to savor the season. Penman Springs’ 2013 Trembler Trois is all that and a bag of peanut M&Ms: a sweet, full bodied treat flowing with spiced orange blossom honey, cherries and dark roasted nuts. We’d take this port-style wine over a meager sack of Skittles any day of the week.

Fun in the dark: ONX Wines

Are you afraid of the dark? Don’t be. Case in point: ONX Wine’s 2017 Black Orchid, a beastly bottle of 100% petite syrah that is all treat, no trick. Black as a moonless night (and just as mysterious), this opulent wine is loaded with ripe cranberry, fig jam and black currant passion. Stroll the garden after hours, taking in heady aromatics—lavender, plum, vanilla bean—paired with piercing acidity and a mouthwatering feel. It’s going to be a long finish…and an even longer night.

One up your Halloween and join ONX October 31 at 3pm PST for their 1st ever Virtual Halloween Wine & Candy Pairing with Costume Contest! They will send a tasting kit to you with specially selected wines to pair with your favorite Halloween candy. Bonus: the candy is also included in the kit! You’ll also get to flaunt your Halloween costumes to the group with prizes awarded for the scariest, funniest, and most creative costume. This group will max out at 50 participants so make sure to get your tasting kit before they sell out. The DEADline to purchase is October 17 – click here to order. Happy Hallo-WINE!

Where’s the beef? Inside these 5 Paso Wine and Beef Pairings!

Old Hollywood movies and complicated dance numbers, shoulder pads and big, frizzy perms, homemade sourdough bread and Instagram double taps: the trends are always changing. No matter how weird the future gets, some pairings will remain rock steady. For instance? Paso Robles wine and a great cut of beef. Ever wonder why a thick slab of meat and a glass of red work so beautifully together? It’s not just a matter of preference—it’s a matter of science! The tannins in that glass of cab actually work to soften the fat in your steak to release more flavor goodness (sorry to make you drool already). But wait, there’s more! The delicious fat in your steak also helps to mellow the wine’s astringency, releasing more of the vino’s inherent fruitiness. Mmmm…! Wondering which wine is best to pair with your next ribeye, T-bone or filet mignon? Any Paso Robles red will do, but here are a few faves we’re more than mooing over:

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon and Syrah from Michael Gill Cellars

Wrap it up, I’ll take it: Dark, smokey syrah is a no-brainer when paired with juicy, slightly charred bacon-wrapped filet mignon. Michael Gill Cellars is ground zero for all things syrah, so you can pick up a few bottles and compare them all? These luscious offerings—and gold medal winners—are a sophisticated homage to Paso’s rocky, calcareous soil and hilly, sunny slopes. From vineyard to vineyard and vintage to vintage, you’ll pick up on nifty nuances that bring out the bold beefiness on your plate! Meaty morsel: Remember, a fattier choice of meat can stand up against syrah’s hefty tannins and structured mouthfeel. Go big or go hungry, right?

For mapping and directions to Michael Gill Cellars, click here.

Tri-tip and a Rhone Red from Brecon Estate

A world of flavor: Not every meaty meal has to knock you on the head with its intense, Flintstones flavor profile. A lighter bodied and more acidic red—like one of Brecon Estates’ beautiful grenache or red Rhône blend offerings—will pick up the bountiful, herbaceous seasonings famously rubbed into this classic Central Coast cut. When paired with perfectly cooked tri-tip (oak-grilled on the outside and blushing pink in the middle) the entire experience is Paso Robles perfection. Meaty morsel: Did you know that the rarer your steak, the more mellow your wine will taste? Good to know when choosing between “medium rare” and “all moo.”

Burger and Cabernet Sauvignon from Rangeland

Back to basics: Ground beef need not be reserved for the kid’s table! A truly gourmet burger can do wonders for your morale (especially if you’ve been eating salads all week). Plus, they’re a cinch to whip up at home on any old night. Order up a box of estate raised Angus ground beef and a case of bold red wine from Rangeland Wines today. Fire up the grill and get acquainted with Rangeland’s fruit forward and velvety cabernet sauvignon, a pairing made in weeknight heaven! Meaty morsel: Be sure to pop the wine at least 30 minutes before digging in. This  allows the cab’s robust flavors to truly open up in the glass. Wouldn’t want to waste a single sip!

For mapping and directions to Rangeland, click here.

Beef Ribs and Zinfandel from Dover Canyon

Repeat after me: “barbecue and zinfandel are best friends!” What might seem like an odd pairing is, in reality, a love affair to stand the test of time. Jammy, spicy zinfandel (like the kind you’ll find at Dover Canyon Winery) has a way of taking saucy beef ribs from “good’ to “grand.” Flavors of bright cherry and black pepper perfectly mimic the savory-sweetness of those tangy, finger-lickin’ ribs! Meaty morsel: Make your own barbecue sauce and add a glug of your favorite zinfandel before reducing the liquid down to a glossy finish. You can thank us later!

For mapping and directions to Dover Canyon, click here.

Mourvèdre from Cass and Dry Aged Steak

Wisdom of the ages: If you don’t think your go-to steakhouse order can be improved, try a dry-aged cut. Why? Dry aging imparts additional flavor and a totally tender texture you have to taste to believe! Naturally present enzymes in the meat break down some of the collagen (the stuff that usually holds muscle fibers together and causes meat to toughen cooking). A steak this exquisite can only be paired with a wine made to linger. Enter mourvèdre, known for its rich flavor and spicy, savory profile (Cass Winery knows a thing or two about perfecting this lesser-known varietal). Polished tannins and a round mouthfeel dance with every marvelous melt-in-your-mouth bite. What could be better? Meaty morsel: Want to “cut it with a butter knife?” With less collagen in a dry aged cut, the end result is, well, like butter!

Sip at home with these 5 Paso Wines

 

Stay put and sip on! We’re all spending a lot of extra time at home these days, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip out on the joy of happy hour. Your abode might be a far cry from a swanky wine tasting room in the décor department, but with a bit of mood lighting (hello, fall scented candles) and a well-curated charcuterie plate, your living room can double as a perfectly acceptable date night hangout.

The main ingredient, of course, is Paso Robles wine! Whether you prefer merlot and a movie. Sangiovese and a sitcom, or just a glass of Viognier and a very hot bath, now is the time to wrap your senses in a proverbial Snuggie of good taste. Because the finer things aren’t just for world travelers. Tonight, couch potatoes rule.

1. Bodega de Edgar and a good book

Reading rainbow: Swing by the Bodega de Edgar tasting room (or point and click over to the winery’s website) and grab a beautiful bottle to pair with your read pile (that stack of books on your bedside table is only growing larger). The winery’s brand new 2019 Albariño is the perfect companion as you turn the page and sink into a story. Notes of lemon blossom, honey, pineapple and tropical aromas initially greet your nose, a riveting first chapter. In the mouth, the wine mimics those same juicy aromas, creating a compelling balance of acid and refreshment. The plot thickens!

Bookmark it: Bodega de Edgar is offering a $240 case special on La Guera Chardonnay or Out of Paso Cabernet Sauvignon now (includes shipping).

2. Hope Family Wines and an action flick

Go where the action is. Hope Family Wine’s 2017 Syrah isn’t afraid to go big! Estate grown in the Templeton Gap region of Paso Robles, this blockbuster red was born from four syrah clones of varying personalities (all of them extroverted). Pair with a fast-paced action movie and feel the outside world melt away. The rich berry flavor offers up explosion after explosion to rock your palate. Just remember: with great intensity comes great responsibility.

Two thumbs up: Order any three bottles or more from Hope Family Wines and receive ground shipping for a penny!

3. Allegretto Wines and a snack attack

“Punchy pinot seeks fun-loving snack for a scrumptious Saturday night.” If this sounds like you, pop open Allegretto Wine’s 2019 Pinot Noir, a fabulously food friendly bottle with charm to spare. Vibrantly fruity with expressive cherry tones and a touch of herbaceous allure, you’ll come for the silky texture and stay for the finish (flush with sage and allspice, we might add). Pair with herb-crusted lamb (or just a box of cheese-topped rosemary crackers) for a finger-licking experience. P.S. Allegretto Wines is offering curbside pickup for an easy grab-and-go selection.

Pampered chef: Looking for a quick way to turn any charcuterie plate into a masterpiece worthy of a foodie magazine? A drizzle of extra virgin Pasolivo Olive Oil always does the trick. You’ve got to try their rosemary flavor with this wine combination!

5 Outdoor Paso Tasting Rooms to Check out this Harvest Season

This fall, watch the vines become wines in beautiful Paso Robles. The grapes are ripe, the vineyards are bustling and the wine?

Friendly winery staff await your arrival with bottles to spare! Let’s cheers to a new vintage together. Here’s to a happening harvest!

1. Sip like a VIP at Jada Vineyard & Winery

Sure, you can book a virtual tasting appointment with Jada via Zoom, but this time of year, you’ve just just got to see the Westside property to believe it. Lounge on a covered, outdoor deck overlooking the 48-acre, sustainably vineyard while you sample six current releases paired with gourmet cheeses. Yum! No need to get out of your chair: Jada’s wines will appear at your table just when you’re reaching for the next sip. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more “VIP tasting experiences” coming soon (like barrel samples chosen to fit your unique preferences and more). Yes, this is just the kind of excellence we’ve come to expect from Jada, a winery that continually crafts premium, all-estate, limited-production Rhone and Bordeaux-style wines that wow. Take it from Josh Reynolds, Editor and Wine Critic, VINOUS “Producers such as…Jada have significantly stepped up [its] game and must now be counted among the Central Coast’s best wineries . . . which is excellent news for everybody, especially consumers.”

2. Downtown vibes at JUSTIN

They say JUSTIN wines are exceptional from every angle, and we tend to agree. Try a sip of their famous Isosceles Reserve for yourself and you’ll soon understand why the regal blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot has captured the hearts of wine critics (and regular wine lovers like us) the world over. The winery’s virtual tastings lead by certified wine sommelier Jim Gerakaris are fantastic, but their downtown tasting room offers up all the excitement of harvest without the need to drive down a bumpy country road. Yes, the buzz of the harvest season is alive in downtown Paso Robles, where winemakers rub elbows with farmers, chefs, and travelers. Savor bold reds and crisp whites by the glass or bottle paired with exceptional food and know that you’re truly in the center of it all.

Storm Paso Roble’s oft-Instagrammed castle and plunder the robust riches of the season. At Tooth and Nail, you never have to choose between varietals because, well, they have them all and we’re certain you’ll find a handful that you can’t live without! Reserve our spot now and sample reds, whites, blends and single varietals grown across Paso Robles and the Central Coast all on the tasting room’s sun dappled veranda.

Book an outdoor wine tasting at Rotta and enjoy a sit-down experience designed to educate and delight. Nestled within a fragrant garden area bestowed with plenty of picnic-worthy places to kick back, you’ll have all afternoon to enjoy the Rotta’s famed cabernet sauvignon, refreshing whites and distinctive dessert offerings.

In Paso Robles, every dog has his day! You already know that your beloved pup is good for your heart and soul. But did you know that Fido is also good for your blood pressure? Not only do dog owners enjoy better overall health, but you may actually live longer thanks to those furry friends at home! Considering we’re all spending a lot more time around the old homestead, why not celebrate your pooch’s fun-loving, nurturing spirit with a well-appointed outing?

As a bonus, stop by our new Visitor Center in the cool Paso Market Walk at 1835 Spring Street and grab a bag of locally made “Paso Pup” biscuits, made with the finest ingredients or luscious, authentic, artisan gelato masterfully crafted by Leo Leo Gelato.

1. Wag more at Wines of the West

Looking for wag-alicious wine off the beaten path? Head west, where the wine offerings are as diverse as the breeds at the Westminster Dog Show. Wines of the West Roadhouse and Wine Tasting features more than a bevy of unique independent wineries (including cans of Alloy wines and everyone’s jammy fave: Purple Cowboy), it’s also a casual hangout perfect for your pooch.

Take me there:

Open for tasting from 11am to 1pm Saturday-Monday. Bottle purchases available from 1-5pm. Reservations strongly recommended.

In fact, join the San Miguel winery for a socially distant celebration of these vivacious vintages with a to-go dinner courtesy of Miss Oddette this Sept 5-6. We’re talking ribs, cornbread and red beans and rice! Of course, tasting flights are always available in their outdoor hangout overlooking the vines.

Sprawl out on the green grass and sample a picnic (they’ve got plenty of fine nibbles on hand) or go for a stroll through the garden menagerie. Either way, today is about losing yourself in the fantasy. Go ahead: fall far, far down the rabbit hole!

Plus, the winery’s lush outdoor tasting area is now open to seated food and wine experiences daily by appointment (six people at a time, for now). Sourced from acclaimed Paso Robles vineyards and lovingly created by winemaker Don Brady, the wines of Robert Hall are a tribute to “hard work and pride in craft.” I think we can all agree that well crafted wine is well worth the work!

5 Paso Wines to Drink ASAP

Why wait? Time is of the essence and summer won’t last forever. Take one last leap into a pool of cool Paso Robles wine (yes, we’re talking about the white, gold and pink varieties). Sure, we love saving and aging killer bottles with the best of them. Still, who doesn’t relish a moment of instant gratification? That’s what screw-tops were invented for! Admit it: There’s just something effortlessly joyous about sipping wine meant to be enjoyed ASAP. Cheers to a well-crafted moment of impulsivity.

1. Dinner plans?

Cass Winery’s 2019 Mr. Blanc is a stunning, charming white you simply must invite dinner. A dreamy Rhone blend with a creamy, citrus nose, medium acidity and round mouthfeel bolstered by vanilla and honeysuckle yumminess, he’s quite substantial (and pairs incredibly well with pasta, seafood, duck and cheese plates galore). We’ll let you in on a little secret: only 80 cases of this gentleman were ever produced, so don’t miss your chance to say you met the legend yourself! Pick up a case and never be without a spectacular screw top again. Ladies, he’s taken!

2. A modern classic

Has Écluse crafted the most satisfying chardonnay under the Paso Robles sun? Perhaps! If you live for a whiff of that traditional French oak yet don’t mind a bit of modern edge, this wine is for you my friend. Aged in both barrel and stainless steel, Écluse’s 2017 Chardonnay straddles the line between creamy and crisp. That’s right—you don’t have to choose a side! With fruit sourced from some of the most desirable vineyards on the Central Coast, you’ll experience terroir and timeless taste all in one ready-to-sip bottle.

But it now

3. Do not disturb

Cleanse the body, cleanse the mind. Brecon Estate’s 2019 Viognier is a palate cleanser for the soul, to be sure. Balanced, varietally correct and a more than a little tropical, this fetching Rhone white is a quintessential example of laid back coastal class. Easy to drink (and even easier to finish) you’ll find each swirl as calming as a bouquet of flowers strewn about your bath, No occasion? No worries! You’ll find this summer sipper ready for whatever the afternoon affords. Trust us: you can’t go wrong with a chaise lounge and a good book.

Buy it now

4. Pinkies up

Some wines are made for years in a cellar and a grand occasion. This wine? Not so much! Chronic Cellars 2019 Kindly Swallows was crafted for unpredictable moments of laughter and off-the-cuff discovery. With lush notes of juicy watermelon, zesty green apple, raspberry and Eucalyptus, this 100% grenache rose is one swallow that’ll get you smiling from each to ear. Pinkie swear!

But it now

5. Now is (always) better

Ahi tacos with mango salsa on the menu? Crack open a refreshing white ready to cool off that jalapeño bite. Known for meticulously sourcing the very best fruit for each batch, Lone Madrone has a reputation for creating unique, one-of-a-kind bottles that surprise and delight. The winery’s 2018 Oveja, a grenache blanc/picpoul blanc blend, is the essence of this mission. Sure, you could age this one till 2025 (according to the winemaker). But let’s get real. We both know you won’t! (Bonus: This beauty scored 93 points with Vinous!)

5 Paso Wines that Pair Perfectly with Pizza

Pizza, pizza! Whether you prefer yours thin and wood-fired or caramelized and deep dish, you’ll never say no to one last tempting slice. Life is full of things to argue about (like whether pineapple does really belong on the toppings list), but we can all agree on one thing: pizza makes any night a party. Thankfully, Paso Robles Wine Country knows a thing or two about food-friendly wines. Try these deliciously juicy bottles paired with your favorite savory pie. Bring on the cheese!

1. Go deep with Villa San Juliette

Crispy caramelized edges and pillows of doughy goodness await fans of deep dish ‘za. But have you tried your fave Chicago-style slice paired with an epic cabernet sauvignon? Sure, a saucy square of deep dish may feel a little too pedestrian for a fancy red, but in Paso Robles we have an overarching philosophy: always drink the good stuff! Villa San-Juliette makes a ravishing cab perfect for washing down that chewy crust: their 2016 VSJ Cabernet Sauvignon is ripe, full bodied and imbued with the perfect amount of nutty spice. Deeply satisfying? Oh yeah.

Buy it now

For mapping and directions to Villa San Juliette, click here

2. Cali style with Iron Oaks

Not all pizzas are created equally. Next time you’re in the mood for a laid back barbecue chicken pizza topped with bacon, red onion and a creamy white sauce instead of traditional marinara, reach for a refreshing California white blend crafted with all the fun and none of the fussiness. Iron Oaks Winery knows a thing or two about shaking up expectations: Floral on the nose and brimming with lemon crème brûlée on the palate, Flipside is a clean-finishing white blend sure to take that side of ranch to a whole new level. And while you are at it pick up some of their exclusive grass fed beef that they raise locally!

Buy it now

For mapping and directions to Iron Oaks, click here

3. Fire it up with Peachy Canyon

Charred toppings and a smoky crunch make those ever-popular wood-fired pies a little sexier than your traditional oven-toasted pizzas, don’t you think? If the scent of a well-stoked fire drives you wild, consider pairing your next sizzling hot slice with an equally bold zinfandel. Peachy Canyon’s award-winning 2017 D Block Zinfandel is intense, in a word. Savor all the sumptuousness of clove, tobacco and allspice paired with cedar and a punch of raspberry. That’s amore!

4. Italy, with love and Pelletiere

With lovingly blackened edges that redefine the word “burnt,” a special wheat flour (dubbed 00, for those in the know) and a simplistic-yet-elegant pairing of vine-ripened tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala cheese, Neapolitan pizza is a true Italian masterpiece you can actually gobble up. Why not buy a case of Pelletiere’s 2017 Tievoli—a super fruit forward and crowd pleasing blend of sangiovese and zinfandel—and know you’ve always got a bottle on hand? This pairing is truly a work of art, no matter how you slice it.

Buy it now

For mapping and directions to Pelletiere, click here

5. DIY yo’ slice with Eberle

The best part about homemade pizza? Well, besides the fact you can make it whenever you want and you’ll never tip a delivery driver—finally, you’re in the captain’s seat. Go with a pre-made gluten free crust or roll it out from scratch the way your grandma taught you; pile on the anchovies or just go crazy with the wild boar sausage. It’s up to you! When DIY is this delicious, pour yourself something fruity, with a twist. Eberle’s 2018 Syrah – Steinbeck Vineyard is packed with blueberry and blackberry pizazz plus a wallop of chocolate and espresso heft. Just don’t forget to set the timer.

Celebrate the End of Summer with these 5 Paso Wine Experiences

Seize the wine! There’s no time like the present to savor a fresh new flavor. As summer draws to a close in Paso Robles Wine Country, let’s aim to squeeze the juice from each precious bottle. Soon, the days will be getting shorter and the nights a little chillier (in Paso Robles, or course, the skies are still blue and the temps hot). Before the toil of harvest begins, let’s celebrate the Paso Robles way. Whether you’re spending August basking poolside or relaxing under the stars, take a moment to enjoy the moment at hand (and the wine in your glass).

1. Savor summer’s end with Parrish Family Vineyard 2017 Sauvignon Blanc

Good to the last drop: Swirl and savor the last splash of golden summer sun. What’s it taste like? Well, if you ask the multi-generational winemaking experts at Parrish Family Vineyard, a lot like sweet honeydew, tart green apple, clean lime and a hint of refreshing minerality. Don’t believe us? Try the winery’s 2017 Sauvignon Blanc for yourself (we promise, you’ll smack your lips in utter satisfaction). Remember: just like summer’s sweetest days, this wine is meant for immediate enjoyment. Go forth and sip…while you still can!

2. Go to Summer school with an ONX Virtual Tasting Experience

Never stop learning (or tasting). If you’re always looking to maximize your wine knowledge, Wine Summer School is for you. We’re talking about ONX’s Virtual Tasting Experience, of course. Book a private appointment (or sign up your best friends from across the country) and keep an eye on the mail. Soon, a tasting kit will arrive on your doorstop—ooh how exciting! Whether you choose to Zoom or Google Hangout with the ONX team, you’re sure to get a unique educational experience just as stimulating as an in-person chat. Dive into each wine offering, relishing the stories behind the grapes. No Netflix tonight!

3. Grill and chill with Oso Libre 2017 Osezno Zinfandel

The last supper is upon us. Toast to those sizzling summer nights—and the juicy, charred feast that completes any great backyard meal. With a totally crowd-pleasing blend of fruit and spice,  Oso Libre’s 2017 Osezno Zinfandel has been crafted with barbecue season in mind. Order a case today and aim to grill and chill until the first whiff of autumn comes knocking. Tip: Kill two birds with one stone and add some estate raised, grass fed Angus beef to your cart. Cooks: prepare to be kissed.

4. Summer vibes with Paso Robles Vacation Rentals

Still planning on traveling safely before summer’s end? A quiet road trip to Paso Robles is sure to inspire a cheery feeling, despite the world’s woes. Whether you’re seeking a small cottage with a pool, a large home with a barbecue pit or just a roomy Cal King bed to curl up in, Paso Robles Vacation Rentals offer up more than 120 unique homes to explore. Just be sure to follow SLO County health guidelines for travelers: Avoid crowds, practice social distancing, use hand sanitizer and stay home if you’re feeling sick. With dozens of outdoor dining options available, you can truly wind down summer with a one-of-a-kind wine-and-dine occasion. Plus: you can always cook in your own kitchen. How luxurious, right? We’re thinking heirloom, watermelon and mint salad…

5. Get beach vibes with Harmony Cellars

The beach is a state of mind! Wash down those dreamy August afternoons with a vibrant white as refreshing as a day sprawled out on the sand. Feel the surf and spray tickle your nose, even if it’s just from the lip of a perfectly chilled glass. Harmony Cellars’ 2018 Reserve Pinot Gris is flush with tropical frruit fun punctuated by cool waves of citrus, pear and short bead cookie. Pair this golden goddess with shrimp tacos or scallops and linguini. Blonde highlights not included.
