Toasting Our Inner Diva
The women-oriented wine category is a fast-growing segment of the industry, focusing on appealing, affordable, and unintimidating choices for the Millenials and others new to wine. Little Black Dress Wines targets these consumers not only by making good-tasting wines with California grapes, but also supporting women's causes. We were lucky enough to receive samples of two new wines in their line, the Divalicious White and Red.
The 2011 Divalicious White is mostly Pinot Grigio, with Moscato, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and others lending a helping hand. The wine is a light straw in color, with floral and citrus aromas, and white peaches transitioning into grapefruit flavors. The acidity cuts through much of the sweetness, and a nice medium finish makes this a tasty aperitif. (Retail $11)
The 2010 Divalicious Red is Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Petite Sirah, with a host of others in supporting roles. This red is a deep, dark red color, with dark plum, cherry, and cocoa aromas and flavors. A surprisingly luscious mouthfeel, smooth throughout the palate, including the lingering finish - really an enjoyable drink. (Retail $11)
