Fred’s Red Mendocino County Red Wine, bottled by McNab Ridge Winery Ukiah, California.
The Fred’s Red label named after the original McNab dog, Fred, and like Fred is a blend of many things. In this case, a base blend of Syrah and Zinfandel but with a large number of little known Portuguese varietals thrown in. It’s fresh, clean, soft, and an infinitely gulpable and enjoyable wine to have with anything off the grill.
On The Back Label
My name is Fred, a McNab Shepherd- a working dog established in Mendocino County over 100 years abo by my Scottish ancestors. Back then, we herded sheep. Today, the McNabs on this ranch round up grapes. A sheep dog herding grapes, you say? You may think I’m barking up the wrong vine here, but grapes, patrolling the vineyard, trying to remember where I buried that bone. I’m very particular about flavor and choose only select vines under which to bury my best bones. Better flavor, better aging. You’re sure to like Fred’s Red and so will your canine-loving friends. Cheers!

I was watching this weeks episode of Hotmixology and was introduced to Louisiana Lightning a clear whiskey has a tiny sliver of lightning in every bottle. The story behind Louisiana Lightning is all about “old Mr. Dufour” in a lightning strike in Amite City, Louisiana where he walked up, touched the lightning bolt “Silky smooth although it does give one a bit of a tingle.” After saying that he sliced off a piece of the lightning and the claim now is that there is a little tiny sliver of lightning in every bottle to make it “silky smooth.” Louisiana Lightning is an award winning corn-grain white whiskey distilled in Amite, Louisiana. Below are listed some of the many awards Louisiana Lightning Whiskey has received.
