The Candidate Red
Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese blend
Flavor and Aroma: Black cherry, red and black currant with smokey, spicy undertones
This year's turbulent U.S. presidential race has intrigued our Canadian neighbors to the north so much that they were inspired to create a pop up launch of two very special Winexpert World VineyardÃ¢â€žÂ¢ Limited Release Wines: The Candidate Red and The Candidate White. All of North America will get to vote for their favorite Candidate wine!
World VineyardÃ¢â€žÂ¢ wines are country specific and represent the best expression of grapes grown in their specific regions. These two top-notch "Candidates" hail from, of course, Washington (state that is). The red we are dubbing the "Tiny Tuscan." It is a classic Super Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese that will be as smooth as your favorite politician's stump speech.
Like with the fast pace of the election, retailers will have a short window to cast their vote (order) to assure getting supply of these interesting, reasonably priced, high quality blends.
Presale orders will be accepted starting today until Wednesday, May 11th at 5 pm EST. This is the same order deadline as the Winexpert Seasonal Dessert Wines. This is a presale plus and we should hopefully have enough Candidates around to continue through the election cycle but order in May to guarantee you have some.
These kits will be available to ship mid-June.
