Down by Law, Chardonnay, California 2014
This wine is cool rockski in the place to be. 100% Chardonnay from Monterey County and Napa Valley, Down By Law has aromas of phat vanilla, cinnamon and a bit of apple pie followed by flavors of honey on a buttermilk biscut and lemon pie. You'll definitely give this wine mad props. 14.2% alc.
Master Sommelier Chris Blanchard has lead quite the life so far. He started his career in the music business at just 14 years of age. As host of a late night radio show mixing and scratching records, he eventually starting touring with hip hop/rap legends RUN DMC, the Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff after releasing his hit single "That's the Way Girls Are" on Profile Records. At the same time, Chris developed an intense interest in wine. He has worked on just about every level of the wine industry (selling to retail shops, working the floor at top restaurants, working harvest as a cellar rat and eventually passing the incredibly rigorous Master Sommelier exam). And our relationship with Chris is unique. Chris was one of our instructors when we passed our introductory sommelier certification exam. Chris' initial hit record was the inspiration for his new wine project, Down By Law.
Down by Law means you have street cred, you have props, respect. You are one of the originators, one of the Originals. Someone who has paid their dues to be "down".
