For our ongoing boozy 21st birthday, our friends at City Winery Chicago made a Bloodshot Red wine! It will be available for purchase starting this Friday night (Oct 2nd) at the Robbie Fulks and Luke Winslow-King show. Tickets to the show are available here. It will also be available for sale in the lobby at City Winery until supplies run out, as well as on City Winery's website.
Bloodshot Red is a California Red Blend: Zinfandel (60%), Pinot Noir (27%), Syrah (11%), Cabernet Franc (2%). And it's made here in Chicago just like us!
For you winos...er...aficionados: It's described as being aromatic with purple flowers and damson plum, cassis and sage. Ripe and dried red fruit and black, brambly berries. Cinnamon, nutmeg and brown baking spices with vanilla bean. Significant tannin and elevated alcohol to balance out this wine. (Elevated alcohol...YUM!)
Those of you who got your hands on the Bloodshot Few Spirits bourbon can now add this bottle to the collection. Who knows? Maybe there will be more Bloodshot booze to come...
