2019 The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, Red Wine, Sierra Foothills

2019 The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, Red Wine, Sierra Foothills

Believe the hype. This is one of the best damn wines we've ever made.

Influenced by Beaujolais nouveau-style wines, this is 2019 vintage red wine from the Sierra Foothills spent just three months in barrel and was bottled with minimal filtration to preserve the bright, fresh characteristics. Because of this, there will be sediment inside each bottle from the winemaking process that tells you it is legit. At the core of this lighter-bodied red wine is 60% Pinot Noir, supported by 26% Cinsault, 13% Valdigué, and 1% Mourvèdre. This is our first time working with Valdiguié, which was once fairly popular in California and referred to as "Napa Gamay" until 1980 when genetic testing proved it wasn't.

So why is this sooo good? Start with the beautiful color. Next, soak in its big, bursting aromas of raspberry, pomegranate, hints of vanilla, brown sugar, and rich leather. Drink it already!... Yeah, you see what we're talking about now? Bright, fresh, flavors of cherry, strawberry cobbler, rhubarb pie, graham cracker (basically, all the good shit), with hints of tobacco, and iced tea. This elegant wine is light in body, but concentrated in flavor, with a curvaceous mouthfeel and a finish so smooth you'll call it Marvin Gaye.

We're not playing around here, this wine is both amazing and versatile. Drink it to chill or drink it with a chill.

We drew inspiration from the 1970 song/poem by Gil Scott-Heron, which called for American rebellion and reformation in the face of injustice: 

The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox
In 4 parts without commercial interruption
The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon
Blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John Mitchell

An indictment of the bullshit narratives controlled by media and corporate consumerism, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised reminds us that change comes from us, real people, and not from the homogenized, mistruths often packaged up by corporate interests.

Hands down one of the best, easy drinking wines we've every had. Its very balanced but bright flavor with a beautiful color. When chilled (although its good even when its not) is great on a warm sunny day! We always add a bottle or two to every order because its just too damn good.

There is something so fascinating about this wine. It has perfect levels of fruit and a surprising depth for a light-medium body, chilled red. We keep ordering more and more.

Tank really nailed this one - it’s light, a little fruity, has an absolutely gorgeous tone and is fair game for any season. Stock up and avoid buying just one bottle or you’ll regret it. They really did do the damn thing here.

We keep our red wine fridge set to 60 degrees, and it was the absolute perfect temperature for this wine. So lightweight but bursting with flavor. Definitely a new favorite and I cannot wait to purchase another bottle!
