This has been tough, exhausting, and heartbreaking. But our only way out is together.
Inspired by so many acts of selflessness and solidarity, we decided to make a wine to raise funds for the heroes on the front lines and the families who need support the most. We're putting our money where our mouth is here and donating all profits from This Too Shall Pass to the GlobalGiving Coronavirus Relief Fund.
With just 27 cases bottled and hand-labeled, this limited edition Red Wine blends 90% Graciano, 5% Cinsault, 4% Albariño, and 1% Verdelho, into a masterpiece of vibrant aromas and black fruit flavors. For the first time, we're going hard in the paint with Graciano, a Spanish grape from the Rioja region that flourishes in the Sierra Foothills and creates this plush black cherry and plum deliciousness accented by notes of chocolate and espresso. As you've seen us do a lot lately, we use lighter varieties like Cinsault, and white grapes like Albariño and Verdelho, to infuse acidity and freshness, creating a wine that's packed with cherry cola vibes.
For this label, we went back to the most OG Tank artist there is, Chip Sheean, who explains:
"The notion behind 'The Mask' piece is that the role of the artist is to be disruptive and find common things and make them uncommon. Our new normal is that for us to protect the ones we love, as well as our neighbors, the CDC recommends we wear a mask when out in public. I created this as a timeless symbol and as a reminder that even though we cannot see the entirety of everyone's face - behind every mask, there is beauty."
Stay safe out there.
