Wine Down with 7 Moons Red Blend!

7 Moons is a fun new wine that celebrates the seven phases of the moon by combining seven grape varietals sourced from prime California vineyards. The 2015 7 Moons Red Blend is smooth, fruity, and easy to drink, with a moon phase label that evokes its “made for the moonlight” mantra, and is the perfect wine down movie night wine!

I spent Mother’s Day with my mom at home, on the couch, watching movies and sipping wine all day. I paired this wine with the movie Moana using my Google Chrome, which is perfect when you want to watch endless amounts of tv shows and movies.  the perfect companion to the nightly ritual winding down and relaxing. 7 Moons really went all out and even sent me a great travel blanket, a bottle to sip, as well as super comfortable slippers! 

The dogs will always join for popcorn, blankets, and wine!

If you want to get cozy with movies and some wine this spring, I recommend this luscious, fruity, and very smooth red blend. What did I love about this wine? Well, for starters I am absolutely into red blends and find them to be fun and complex to analyze. I enjoy reading what the grape varietals are and then seeing which ones I taste and can pinpoint in the blend. This wine is very smooth, so it was a fun one to pick apart and taste.

The grapes came from California Central Coast and Lodi vineyards. The 2015 vintage was great for the area, which is why this wine expresses bold fruit flavors like strawberry, cherry cola, chocolate, vanilla, and spices. The finish is long and lingering and pairs perfectly with red meats, Chinese take out, and freshly popped buttered popcorn! For $12.99 this wine can be your go-to rainy night in, bbq, or movie night wine.

I am an absolute popcorn LOVER, so when it came to movie night with my mom, I made sure to butter and salt every layer with real butter. It was simply perfect with the bold fruit flavors and spice notes in the wine; and when paired with the movie Moana… the perfect girls night pairing!

Always remember, eat what you like and drink what you love. Please pair responsibly.
