Wondering what to bring to your next dinner party? Or to buy for the Boss/Friend/Co-worker/Therapist/Lover or basically anyone who drinks wine? Look no further than Swanson Vineyard's Modern House Wines.
The delicious Modern House Wine is a proprietary red wine, carefully blended to appeal to a wide swath of palates... from beer-and-whiskey-loving wine novice to the most discriminating oenophile on your guest list. Swanson Vineyards' modern House Wines were even recommended by Oprah in her O magazine.
Predominantly Syrah, with some Cabernet Sauvignon added to the blend, this 2009 California Proprietary Red Wine exemplifies the ripe, concentrated quality of the long, cool 2009 vintage.
The wine has a youthful purple color. Ripe, jammy blueberry and raspberry fruit dominate the aroma, with hints of red licorice and vanilla.
The wine is rich and sweet on the palate, with well-rounded, mouth-coating tannins. In addition to ripe black cherry and black raspberry, there is a suggestion of exotic spices.
The Just Married wine is also available in white crafted from a tiny-batch of Pinot Grigio with a splash of Chardonnay. It is the perfect wine choice for your cocktail, luncheon or dinner reception: crisp, yet bursting with fresh mango and litchi, balanced with a Meyer lemon zest.
