More about this wine from California
In the 1990s, the Little family had a little dream to own a little vineyard and farmhouse in Sonoma Valley, California. Fast forward a couple of decades and the Little family has raised a few kids, restored a farmhouse, and built themselves a not so little wine business. The Little Family is also quite the musical family. The father of the family plays guitar in a band formed by friends, and the story goes that when the band got together for practices they were caught sneaking some wine from the winery. To prevent future theft the Little Family winemaker decided to make the band its own special blend for their consumption during practice.

And just like that... the Band Blend became a fave and the Little Family decided to bottle it and sell it to all of us! Meet the 2016 vintage of the Band Blend Live. The juice is a blend of classic California grapes like Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, but with a delightful Italian twist with the addition of the Teroldego grape. The nose is super fragrant and all about ripe and juicy plums combined with black cherry and a freshly split vanilla bean. The sipping is more complex as the rich fruit slides into subtle spice of white pepper and cloves.

A perfect red wine to kick off the beginning of spring. This juice is calling for anything from the grill, but we're thinking skip the standard burger and break out some eggplant and portobello mushrooms to put on the hot coals.
