Contains two bottles each:
2020 Bloom! Bloom!, Grenache, Calaveras County, Rorick Heritage Vineyard
As soon as you pour the wine, its rich ruby color with a slight purple hue will take your breath away. You'll immediately be greeted by the sweet aroma of cherries and cocoa, followed by a subtle hint of leather, herbs, and cedar. On the palate, Bloom! Bloom! is fresh, textured, and oh-so-elegant. It has velvety tannins that give it a delightful grip and nice acidity that complements the intricate blend of cherries, cocoa, and earl-grey tea flavors. The wine finishes with a satisfying aftertaste that will make you long for another sip.
2020 Lonely Hearts Club, Red Wine, El Dorado County
To our OG Tank folk who loved Like You Stole It or Dark Science, this is the wine for you. Lonely Hearts Club will take you on a mind-bending, experimental journey through Strawberry Fields Forever. Prepare for a swirling kaleidoscope of strawberry pop tart, rose water, and watermelon accentuated by dragon fruit and marjoram. It reminds us of dry desert winds. With mouthwatering acidity and microfine tannins, this El Dorado blend is begging for funky food to pair with a lonely (or broken) heart.
Feeling salty? Pop the top on ramen (instant). Deserve something special? A paella (for one). Craving something sweet? Reach for a bowl of lucky charms (for dinner) or a box of mixed pastries (eat at least four). Want to eat your feelings? Go for a grilled cheese (made in a toaster oven). Feeling lazy? You know what it is: chicken nuggets (20 pieces, extra honey mustard).
Softcore, Carbonic Red Wine, California
With a medium body in the glass, the first thing you'll notice when you smell this wine is the spice. White pepper and celery salt intermingle with ripe cherry aromas. Once deep (but not too deep) inside your mouth, flavors of wild cherries and blackberries wash over your tongue with a satiny texture and reveal notes of oak, earth, and...like...Chicago-style hot dogs...c'mon, that's sexy. The finish lingers, leaving you with a desire for more with every sip.
Softcore is satisfying on its own, but extremely versatile when it comes to food. It pairs well with everything from risotto, to rare chateaubriand, chocolate truffles...and Chicago-style hot dogs. Honestly, we've loved slightly chilling the wine.
