Half 2012 Aleander Valley Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon and half 2012 West Side Paso Robles Syrah. 100% California. 100% Awesome
This is a traditional New World style California cocktail wine. It is Medium-bodied with a velvety mouth feel followed by the bright red fruit of cherries and raspberries. we wanted to make wine we can drink every day, so we cut the tannins from the Cabernet by blending in a Central Coast Syrah. The Syrah gives this wine a white pepper and vanilla characteristic right as the bottle opens, while the Cabernet keeps a backbone of caramel, oak and dark vineyard soil.
We used the strongest American made glass we could find and then screen printed directly onto the bottle with glow-in-the-dark ink. Why? Because how else can you find a bottle when the lights are off? And no one had ever done it before.
Sooooo Chip thinks he’s funny and as a joke, drew a very professional sketch of each of us and put our names and cell phone numbers on each cork. Yep...
