Sexy Mermaid Rosé or Rabble Tooth & Nail Rosé Wine is going to be super popular as the label is nothing but sexy, you want the label framed in your study or a tattoo sleeve depending on your age. Either way you will enjoy this rosé as it is big, round and fruit driven. Not so much that it screams California, if you blind taste this rosé you may say it is from France. Made from Estrella-clone Syrah from the Mossfire Ranch, a scenic 320 acre property on the eastern side of Paso Robles, CA. Paso Robles is known for superior fruit, and amazing scenery. This is going to be an amazing summer, wine- stock up!
National Wine Day, is definitely a holiday worth celebrating. Get behind this holiday, head over to your local wine shop and purchase some wine you love and a bottle of something new, different something you might have read about or been reading about. We all get into a routine of buying the same wine, I like to celebrate National Wine Day by expanding my horizons, treating myself to something a bit more something worth opening on this special holiday. My something new is;
2011 EDICT. Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon, CA – Napa Valley – Napa Valley, An inviting nose of Raspberries and Black Current that continues on the palate. Located in Coombsville, the Collinetta vineyard offers an elegant texture with lots of dense ripe red fruits. The acidity reinforces and balances the structure which entails a mouth watering finish that lingers in the end of the mouth long after the wine is gone. Fine hints of coconut and vanilla discretely reveal the 100% French oak aging. Together, powerful dense fruit, bight forward acidity and balanced oak integration birth a cohesive ensemble showing off Coombsville AVA at its finest – making a wine that will grow effortlessly for years to come.
More ideas on how to celebrate National Wine Day, it’s a great time to purchase some new glasses, a wine refrigerator or some accessories.
Wine Glasses and Stemware, head over to Crate&Barrel or shop online, I have always been a fan of their selection. Also you can purchase one glass, yes you will break a glass and can order one more and not have to purchase a whole new set.
Wine Refrigerator, Wine Cooler Direct has both great products and great prices, visit their site to look at the top sellers.
Wine Accessories, I always head over to FRONTGATE, they have wine accessories that are well built, fun and functional.
Note: Do not get National Wine Day (May 25th) confused with National Drink Wine Day (February 18th). National Wine Day is all about drinking and enjoying wine, National Drink Wine Day is about educating people on the health benefits of drinking wine. Things like moderate drinkers have lower risks for liver disease, type two diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and some cancers. Wine has also been known to reduce “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, and increase “good” cholesterol, known as HDL, a glass of wine has just 100 calories, and its fat-free and cholesterol free…

Oak & Steel, a great liquor store, with a great selection, comparable prices and an amazing location. Oak & Steel is my go to liquor store when I need to pop in and out and get a great bottle of something unique. The staff makes the place, very knowledgeable in wine and spirits. Dena, I think her job is operations and marketing yet she really has customer service down. All the staff appear to love what they do and make great recommendations. Their prices are very comparable with other liquor stores near by, but the elevated level of service here is worth so much more. I do not live in NY but I visit often, Oak & Steel does give a discount to some hotels, mention what hotel you are staying at and you could get a 10% discount. Also they invited me to a tasting, from time to time they have in store tastings where you can try new or unique items. Oak & Steel, keep up the good work I look forward to my next visit to both New York and your fine establishment.

My new favorite gin, super smooth, Bummer & Lazarus Gin! Master distiller Carter Raff created his own stills for his proprietary San Francisco distillery situated on Treasure Island. Raff has 24 years of winemaking and 14 years of distilling, now the creator of Bummer & Lazarus Gin. It is a 92-proof, gin that uses 100 percent California grapes at its base. The gin was named after two fabled canine celebrities from San Francisco’s historical past (when Lazarus died, 30,000 attended the funeral, when Bummer died, Mark Twain wrote the eulogy). The gin boasts a well-balanced flavorful profile with hints of citrus and floral notes as well as a long spicy finish. This award winning gin has won a Gold Medal at the 2013 Craft Spirits Competition and named one of the top 50 spirits by Drink Me Magazine. It makes a great gin and tonic yet I tend to drink more of it on the rocks with a lemon twist, either way I am sure you will enjoy it, cheers!
