I'm more of a fan of sweet white wine. Actually, my husband jokes that if it tastes like Kool-Aid, I'm going to like it, but I have been branching out and drinking more "adult wine" recently. I have become a big fan of a red zinfandel, so I was pleased to hear that the Pantone color of the year was Marsala! Now I can be fashionable with every sip this year and kick my sweet white wine habit. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. According to Latrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, "This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors."
