Lipstick and Gunpower is a wine that doesn’t mess around. Hard to resist, it’s undeniably attractive with its soft entry and dark cherry aromas, yet bold with its explosive flavors of black pepper and blackberry jam. The label for this one was inspired by the wine itself; sexy and alluring yet powerful and badass!
The “Lipstick” in the blend is old-vine Primitivo combined with a dash of Barbera, a sexy combination that brings the beautiful aromatics and elegance to the wine with loads of brightness. The “Gunpower” is ass-kicking Syrah that brings a juicy body with a bang. Its powerfully evocative bold fruit and spice flavors with a ton of bravado make this blend strong, extraordinary and daring.
We never could trust this one.
