Seven Daughters.....

If you are looking to try out a new wine anytime soon I would highly recommend checking out Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blend. They offer both a white and a red wine and I tried the white today based on a rave review from Cesar and it is FABULOUS! It is slightly limited in places where you can purchase it, but I checked out their website yesterday scouting for any nearby sources and found that a local Target not too far away had purchase some recently. So, after dinner at Gloria's last night we made a pitstop at Tar-jay and low and behold....they had the Seven Daughters White in stock! I was going to wait and have some with dinner tonight, but I thought to myself - what the heck, I am going to enjoy some WHILE I make dinner too! It is very good and is a very nice blend of flavors....pretty crisp and light imo.

Here is what Avenue Vine had to say about Seven Daughters.....

Terlato Wines International continues to pioneer new categories with the release of two new innovative California blends that speak to today's informed and engaged wine consumer. Created to provide an approachable introduction to the sophisticated art of blending and to complement the move toward light, fresh and healthier cuisine, the vibrant Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends, one white and one red, are each composed of seven carefully selected varietals that complement each other to produce a blend much greater than the sum of its parts.

Trailblazing Terlato Wines Unveils Two New Wine Blends--Seven Daughters Offers Unique Taste for Today's Wine Consumer...

"Today's wine consumers are curious and engaged. They are interested in learning more about grape varietals, the process involved in winemaking, the aromas and flavors that result from blending wines, and now, they want to know what's next," said William Terlato, President and CEO of Terlato Wines International. "We created Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends to provide wine drinkers with a way to experience the art of blending, in a unique package that balances sophistication with fun."

Seven Daughters White Winemaker's Blend is composed of seven distinct varietals including Riesling, Symphony, Chardonnay, Orange Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and French Colombard. Sultry scents of orange blossom, musk and melon hint at a palate with the fresh flavors of lychee and tangerine. Full-bodied and alluring, the wine finishes with a satisfying spicy note.

Complete with seven different grapes, Seven Daughters Red Winemaker's Blend is a sophisticated melange of Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel, Carignane, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet displays blackberry and pepper, supported by subtle notes of lavender and vanilla. After an exuberant palate of red fruit, including dried cherries, the wine finishes with a touch of spice.

Both blends take cues from today's hottest culinary trends which feature healthy, fresh and more vibrantly spiced food. Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends pair well with a variety of foods and are perfect for casual entertaining or a night in with friends. The blends deliciously complement a wide range of cuisines including grilled meats, seafood, Latin cuisine, sushi and Asian fusion.

As consumers have grown increasingly adventurous and interested as to how food is grown and prepared, their curiosity also extends to wine. To provide greater clarity to today's actively aware consumers, the percentages of each grape used in Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends are clearly listed on the labels.

“I frequently meet people who want to understand what’s in a wine bottle with hopes of sharing that knowledge with friends and family, people whom struggle all the time with getting their friends and family to love wine as much as they do," says Maureen Petrosky, author of "The Wine Club" and Seven Daughters ambassador. "It doesn't matter if it's on the runway or in a bottle, today's trend setters want something with flair that fits their style and personality. With Seven Daughters Blends they now have easy access to vibrant wines as fun and fashionable as they are."

Seven Daughters White Winemaker's Blend is currently available at select retailers. Both the White and Red blends will be available at fine wine shops, retailers and restaurants across America beginning in April 2008. The suggested retail price for both wines is $14.99.
