Guarachi Wine Partners has announced the launch of Bacon, a Rhône-style red blend from the Central Coast of California.
Dark red fruits with hints of peppery spice wrap around juicy flavors that embody a wine created to compliment any meal, the company says — just like America’s most craved food: Bacon.
Rhône-based and aged in oak for 12 months, Bacon tastes of spiced brambleberry jam and burnt caramel, the company says, with ripe tannins. Bacon includes a real wood label, and has a suggested retail price of $19.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
“The vision behind Bacon came from my desire to create a one-of-a-kind wine that could be enjoyed by the masses,” explains Alex Guarachi, CEO of Guarachi Wine Partners. “I recognized an opportunity with the premiumization and customization of domestic blends, and set out to create something special. In doing so, we added fruit from my Napa Valley Estate (cabernet sauvignon and syrah encompassing 15% of the blend) and found the perfect balance to produce amazing quality with the right taste profile.”
