Winemaker's Notes

Maynard James Keenan, lead singer of Tool, A Perfect Circle & Puscifer, wines are now in Australia.

2010 Stronghold Mandala Red
Maynard explains the Mandala best... “A physical metaphor for impermanence, is composed of tiny grains of varying color and shade gathered from far and wide. Our global terrain offers an infinite palate. Drawing from this palate and upon their Intuition, Focus, Patience and Dexterity, the Artists construct and present a single moment, never to be repeated. This wine is constructed with these principles in mind. With Time, Weather and Varietals influenced by contrasting terroir as our palate, we offer you this deliberate combination of places, never to be duplicated and to be enjoyed in this moment.”

On the nose, voluptuous aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and spice emanate from the glass, all of them expanding and deepening when you take a sip. Red plums and pomegranate join the dark fruits with flawless synergy. Then more layers are revealed: tingly black pepper, anise, vanilla and violets. All that fruitiness and perfume is balanced with good acidity, supple tannins and a bit of earth.

Pair this wine with barbecue Italian sausage with roasted bell peppers.

2011 Charles Smith The Velvet Devil Merlot
Cult winemaker Charles Smith makes wines that retain true varietal characteristics and can be enjoyed immediately. This sexy and smooth Merlot is French Oak aged to give subtle tannins that linger in the mouth. This full bodied Merlot can be enjoyed with or without food. Get ready to enjoy Merlot like it should taste.

Classic Merlot aromas of dark cherries, cedar, pipe tobacco. Anise, stone and cherry blossoms. Yeah, believe it! Naughty and nice, a true Velvet Devil.
