Red Wine Blends

Aug 8th, 2015 by admin | 0

Red wine blends, particularly those by domestic producers, are growing in popularity. Red blends can be a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot or any combination of red wines.

Red wine blends are typically 40 to 50-percent of the main grape with smaller portions of the others. Blends give the wine a nice balance, a better finish and a more complex flavor. Here are four red wine blends, two that are full-bodied and two with a gentler harmony of fruit.

If you love intense red wines – this one is deep, dark and bold. Ménage à Trois Midnight Dark Red Blend combines Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot to create a luxurious and rich intermingling. These four grapes present a velvety texture and a sumptuous concentration of fruit.

Cheers!

Corkcicle Wine Chiller

May 16th, 2014 by admin | 0

Now this is a great wine accessory to keep your wine chilled this summer and all year-round. The Corkcicle Wine Chiller is a tube-shaped insert that you put in the freezer and then put in your wine bottle. It keeps your wine chilled without using an ice bucket, and it corks your wine at the same time.

Just place the Corkcicle in the freezer for at least 90 minutes. Pour a little wine out of the bottle to make room for the Corkcicle, and then position the Corkcicle in place of the bottles cork. In just twelve minutes your wine will be chilled to the perfect drinking temperature.

The Corkcicle Wine Chiller will not dilute your beverage, and it will not make your wine too cold, which can happen when using an ice bucket.

It’s great with white wine, and you can use it for red wine too. It can help bring your room temperature reds down to a more palatable temperature.

 

Don’t worry beer drinkers, they thought of you too. The one for beer drinkers is called the Cockcicle Chillsner Beer Chiller.

No matter which beverage you prefer, you have to have a Corkcicle. It’s as handy as a corkscrew. It’s a great way to keep your beverages chilled in a more compact and easier way.  It’s great for any gathering where you serve wine or beer, and it’s perfect to take on the go.

Cheers!
