The semi-sweet red, Frontenac blend of the 2010 vintage has sold out! It was originally released last February (2011) and is a delish red wine option with the mouth-feel of a dryer red due to the skin contact the Frontenac has during initial fermentation, and a slight sweetness on the tip of your tongue. A beautiful garnet blend of Frontenac and Geisenheim combines aromas of cherry and strawberry with a clean balanced finish. The name "Sun Dog" was chosen for the second wine in our series of wines dedicated to doggies in addition to "Sweet Licks", a semi-sweet Concord/Catawba blend labeled in commemoration to our doggie, Little Man.
"Sundogs may appear as a colored patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22° distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_dog)
Beside the sun, sundogs heel to the right or left of their master. "Sun Dog" is dedicated to our three doggies, Baby, Honda, and Buell- a halo encompassing their absolute love, loyalty and honesty. We again have a family of four doggies with the adoption of Deebo, a darling little chihuahua with a ton of personality. ;o)
Look for the 2011 Sun Dog on the shelves next week!
