Iron Side Cellars has announced the launch of two limited-release wines: the second vintage of Iron Side Reserve Napa Valley Red, and the brand new Iron Side Reserve Pinot Noir from Monterey, CA.
Both 2016 releases represent the top wines in the Iron Side portfolio, the company says.
Iron Side was first introduced in 2012 by Latitude Beverage Company as the company’s first foray into winemaking. Along with two winemakers in Healdsburg, CA, the team sources red wines from vineyards in California, and crafts custom blends that highlight a perspective on California red wine.
Iron Side Cellars Reserve Red, Napa Valley, CA, 2016 — A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, petite sirah and zinfandel. The cab comes from the appellation of Howell Mountain, known for producing some of Napa’s boldest wines. The merlot grapes, which grow in the cooler region of Carneros, provide a cool sensibility and counterweight. The SRP is $29.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
Iron Side Cellars Reserve Pinot Noir, Monterey, CA, 2016 — Bold and fruit-forward in the recently popular California style, the company reports, with flavors of black cherries, plus a sweet spice. SRP: $24.99.
Iron Side Reserve Red and Iron Side Reserve Pinot Noir feature a new felt label and premium medallion for an elevated look, the company reports. The wines are now available for a limited time at retail locations in 15 states where Iron Side and 90+ Cellars wines are sold. Both wines are also available for purchase online with direct shipping to more than 30 states nationwide.
