Taylor’s Band of Blends Private Label

Taylor’s Band of Blends Private Label

It’s Here! Our newest private label wine has arrived! Taylor’s Wine Shop presents the Band of Blends, 2014 Paso Robles Red Wine Blend, Lot #1 Band of Blends 2014 Paso Robles Red Wine Blend Lot #1 Normal Price: $50-$60, Taylor’s Label: $34.99 The Taylor’s Porch Pounder Pinot is almost gone, and we had so much fun with that first private label wine, we knew we had to do another one. So we turned to our favorite hunter of exceptional wines at incredible prices, The Treasure Hunter himself, Hunter Vogel. A blend of 43% Grenache, 38% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 9% Petite Sirah, this is a bold and spicy blockbuster you won’t believe. Hunter knew that we have loved the Moon Duck Red that he did a couple years ago with Saxum assistant winemaker Mark Adams, so he went in search of another winner from Paso Robles for the Taylor’s wine lovers and came back with this absolute stunner. As usual, Hunter can divulge the original source (otherwise the original winery couldn’t get away with charging premium pricing for their label) but he can say that it’s from a “big name,” mailing list only winery who’s stuff normally isn’t available in NC unless you’re one of the lucky few on their list. He also says that the 2013 version of this wine under the main label got 95 points from the Wine Advocate. Beautiful deep crimson color, offering up notes of black raspberries, cassis, hints of bacon fat, liquid violets and pepper. Full-bodied and concentrated, yet showing surprising finesse with a silky finish that has a beautiful purity of fruit...

TWE Wine Dinner – Feb 2nd

TWE WINE DINNER featuring Reynolds Family Winery and Italics Winegrowers and Steadfast Wines THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2ND AT FLEMING’S PRIME STEAKHOUSE (sold out) We are proud to be a sponser of another amazing wine dinner with Reynolds Family Winery and Italics Winegrowers and Steadfast Wines at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar during this years Triangle Wine Experience! The Reynolds Family interest in wine started when the youngest boy, Steve Reynolds, was living in Germany as a young teenager. Wine was always part of his daily life and his father often took the whole family on wine tasting trips through Europe. He is grateful to his father for sharing his passion and infecting him with his enthusiasm for wine. Steve and his father dreamt of building a winery together and their vision became reality when he and his wife, Suzie, traded their dental practice for the life of wine growers in 1994. The winery is Tuscan style, one of Steve’s father’s favorite wine growing regions, and is surrounded by 10 acres Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in 1996. Their first vintage was produced in 1999, and they now create eight wines, including a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, two Pinot Noir’s (from the Russian River Valley and Los Carneros), a Merlot, the Estate Cabernet, a Reserve Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon and a red wine Bordeaux blend appropriately called “Persistence” TM. Steve Reynolds, Winemaker and Owner, has long championed the Triangle Wine Experience and the children of the Frankie Lemmon...
