Drink Bravely - Côtes du Rhône

In time for the elections, Mark Oldman broadcasts from the U.S. Capitol in our nation's capital to discuss why adding ice isn't necessarily a capital offense. He features Côtes du Rhône, a dependably delicious and affordable red that is perfect for robust, cooler-weather fare.
