PRICE ON 12/17/2014: $10.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Vivid, salmon-pink in color, this "Diva" takes center stage with show stopping aromas of strawberry and grapefruit. With a hint of refreshing effervescence, this flavorful rose is bursting with juicy flavors of ripe berries and just a dash of sweetness, with a dazzling, clean finish.

Food Pairing: Divalicious Pink Pinot is a delightful accompaniment to light summer dishes, especially salads, fish, grilled meats, and fresh cheese, or enjoyed by itself as a cocktail.

Blend: Predominately Pinot Grigio, with small amounts of Moscato, Chardonnay & Viognier.

Winemaker's Notes:

I'd like to introduce you to Pink Girl. Pink Girl is a California rosé unique and pink – one that celebrates the true beauty of a rosé, pink, vibrant and feminine. Each label is hand-applied with a real Austrian crystal – this wine utters "pink" with every sip. While Napa Valley is known for its seductive red wines, the Syrah grape puts forth a lovely red and white fruit character, balanced in this pink wine that is pressed for a rose. White cranberry, icy pomegranate and a pop of cotton candy hit the palate. This is not Lucy's white zinfandel – it is a dry, crisp, lighter style of wine, meant to enjoy with spicy Indian foods, a summer crab salad or as a stand alone at your next girls' night out!

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Merlot reveals aromas and flavors of ripe cherries and blackberries with notes of spice. Sweet fruit on the palate is complemented by toasty oak and soft tannins.

This is a soft and versatile style of Merlot that would pair well with foods like pork tacos or grilled tuna steaks. It will also make a great pairing for vegetarian dishes like grilled Portobello mushrooms or pasta with tomato sauce.

About Red Diamond:

Red Diamond is located at the edge of Columbia River gorge in eastern Washington State. The Red Diamond phenomenon began in 2003 when their first wine, a Merlot, was released to limited markets, targeting restaurants only. The response was immediate: 25,000 cases were sold within the year.

Since then, Red Diamond has released three additional wines: Chardonnay, Cabernet and Shiraz. Each wine exhibits enticing flavors truly representative of the grape varietal.

(search item no. 119977)

PRICE ON 12/17/2014: $9.99

Winemaker's Notes:

This Old Vine Zinfandel comes from vineyards in the Russian River Valley planted in the early part of the last century. We produce this wine using traditional methods including fermentation in small open top fermenters and hand punch downs twice a day. Known for being among the coolest climates where Zinfandel is grown, which allows for a longer growing season and fully developed flavors, our Russian River Valley Old Vine Zinfandel has bright and complex flavors and aromas of raspberries, cherries and blackberries with hits of pepper, vanilla and cedar.
My Notes:

About Starry Night Winery:

The story of how we came into existence starts many years earlier when Wayne Hansen, Bruce Walker, Mike Miller and Skip Granger started making wine at an amateur level. Our motivation for this came from a shared life long passion for wine and an increasing disdain for the over priced and often mass-produced wines found in the market.

At Starry Night Winery, our goal is to produce the finest wines possible that accentuate the regions from where the grapes are best grown. We currently produce Chardonnay and Zinfandel from the Russian River Valley, a Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley, Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley as well as Zinfandel and Petite Sirah from the Lodi appellation. This coming summer we will be bringing back Adara, our Rhone Style Blend and this fall we will be releasing out first Cabernet Franc from Lake County.

Winemaker's Notes:

The floral notes of our 2010 White Wine lift lightly from the glass and intermingle aromatically with scents of orange blossom, jasmine and rose petal. On the palate, this refreshing wine offers flavors of honeysuckle, pineapple and Fuji apple with slight hints of melon and guava. A balanced acidity contributes to a lush, round mouth-feel and leads to a lasting, vibrant finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava, created from a blend of reserve and non-vintage wines, is clean and delicate, yet rich in flavor.

Brut is a cuvée of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo grapes grown in the renowned Penedès region of Spain. The wine is vinified according to méthode champenoise technique and is aged in the bottle for up to 2 years.

This fine cuvée is fairly crisp with an interesting floral note and mouth-pleasing sensation of creaminess.

Winemaker's Notes:

In 2012, Apothic Red was crafted from a blend of primarily Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. These varieties come together seamlessly for a fruit-driven wine with fresh dark fruit flavors and jammy red fruit notes. The Zinfandel offers bold dark fruit flavors and spicy notes, complemented by the soft mouthfeel of Merlot. The Syrah adds layers of smooth blueberry, while the Cabernet Sauvignon delivers ripe fruit flavors and a firm structure. This decadent blend is framed by hints of oak, vanilla, and mocha.
My Notes:

Additional wines from Apothic:

About Apothic:

More than 800 years ago, vintners blended and stored their most coveted concoctions in a mysterious place called Apotheca. In late 2005, a Master Winemaker envisioned an epic red wine combining Old World traditions of blending while realizing a markedly New World style. Thus began the path that led his protégé, winemaker Boyd Morrison, to select grapes from California's bountiful vineyards for this new blended red. Morrison was inspired to blend spicy Zinfandel, with smooth Merlot and lush, dark Syrah to create Apothic Red.

PRICE ON 12/17/2014: $11.99

Winemaker's Notes:

The Purple Cowboy Tenacious Red Blend opens with teeth-staining dark red with hints of purple. Vibrant aromas of crushed red berries and cherries, notes of cola and cinnamon, and a hint of earthiness. Berry flavors explode in the mouth with cinnamon and cassis in the mid-palate leading to slight cocoa powder tannins on the finish. A very rich, full-bodied style.

This wine is perfection with grilled tri-tip of beef roast—a signature dish of the Central Coastal winegrowing region. In Paso Robles, the beef is grilled chuck wagon-style over a red-oak fire. Serve with other great cowboy fare like baked beans, garlic bread, and a green salad.

My Notes:

Additional wines from Purple Cowboy:

About Purple Cowboy:

The grapes for Purple Cowboy come primarily from Paso Robles, the largest appellation in San Luis Obispo County on California’s famed Central Coast. Over the years, Paso Robles was known for producing structured Cabernet Sauvignon. More recently, a group of winemakers known as the Rhone Rangers has garnered attention with Syrah, a grape well-suited to this warmer region. The Paso Robles AVA is sometimes called Cowboy Wine Country, a reference to its historic identity as a ranching and farming area. Daytime temperatures often top 90 Degrees, but in the evening the vines are cooled by fog cascading down the eastern slope of the Santa Lucia range which separates Paso from the Pacific Coast. Purple Cowboy is sourced from the eastern half of the AVA which is warmer, drier and typically produces full-bodied wines with rich fruit character, soft tannins and balanced acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

Do you know me? I'm the one in the front row. The one with the big personality, giant sunglasses, large bodyguards. I even have a wine named after me. Brilliant! A stunning Pinot Grigio, in perfect taste for any social event, from fashion shows to fundraisers. Or on that rare occasion we're dining in. Admit it, Middle Sister, we so do love the attention. See you in the gossip columns.

76% Pinot Grigio, 12% Chenin Blanc, 12% Chardonnay.

Smells like ...apples and pears with a touch of lemongrass.

Tastes like ...an explosion of apples and pears, with a slight touch of mineral on the finish. Yummy with ...Minestrone soup, Fried Calamari, Ham and Cheese Sandwich, and Antipasto platter of olives, roasted peppers and marinated mushrooms.

About Middle Sister:

The Wine Sisterhood believes wine should taste good, be a fair value, and make life more enjoyable for anybody who chooses to partake. Before we launched Sweet and Sassy Moscato, we brought her picture across the country and asked women of all backgrounds and ethnicities what they thought of her. Our wine sisters unanimously agreed that is was important to recognize the diversity of women who love wine. That’s why we have made a sister of color the face of our new wine.
