Eartha Kitt Red Blend 2018
California

A Star is Born (1937)
TUESDAY, JUNE 2 @ 03:00 PM (ET)

Eartha Kitt was a star of not only movies, but also television, Broadway, and radio. She was a truly unique talent. Janet Gaynor stars in the first namesake of this oftremade classic as Vicky Lester and although her ascension to fame takes a different path, we felt that one true star deserves another.

THE WINE

Hailed by Orson Welles as “the most exciting woman in the world,” the inimitable Eartha Kitt delighted audiences for seven decades. During her impressive career, she worked as a singer, actress, dancer, comedian, author, and songwriter. All these roles made her one of Hollywood’s greatest entertainers, just as the various grape varieties in this exclusive red combine to produce a satisfying, complex red. Crafted in tribute to Eartha Kitt, it comes from California’s fantastic 2018 vintage and marries Cabernet and more for layers of sumptuous black fruit and subtle vanilla-spice.

THE GRAPES

Known as ‘the King of Reds,’ Cabernet Sauvignon is the world’s most popular red grape and takes centerstage in this exclusive blend. It’s the variety you have to thank for the wine’s luscious, black-fruit flavors. The winemaking team also included healthy portions of inky-dark Petite Sirah, berry-rich Syrah, smooth Merlot, and deep Petit Verdot. All together, the varieties produce a wine that’s far greater than the sum of its parts.

THE VINTAGE

GI_grapes_redclstrsvine_GooseRidgeIt’s a great time to be a fan of California wine, as the 2018 vintage continues the string of stellar harvests started back in 2012. According to Wine Spectator, “cooler temperatures and moderate weather lead to a long growing season, allowing grapes to ripen smoothly” in Northern California. What does this mean about the wine in your glass? You’ll enjoy concentrated, fresh flavors.

WITH FOOD

Juicy burgers, saucy ribs, veggie kebabs, or your favorite cut of steak will all be delicious matches. In the cooler months, try roasted meats, hearty vegetarian stews, or charcuterie and firm, aged cheeses.
