Wines That Rock Uncork Another

Steal Your face Red Blend is the latest wine branded with an iconic band's song or album title to join the roster offered by Wines That Rock.  The Grateful Dead titled red will be in good company, including a Dark Side Of The Moon Cabernet, a Rolling Stones Merlot known as Forty Licks, a Woodstock Chardonnay and a Police themed Synchronicity Red blend.  A collaboration between a Rock management company and Mendocino Wine Co. gets credit for coming up with the concept that merges music and vino. The wine company's Mark Beaman is the lucky soul that gets to draw on two of two of his favorite things in the world - Rock music and wine making to come up with the flavors and names.  Of the newest addition to the company line-up, Beaman says, 'To capture the essence of the live energy for Grateful Dead's Steal Your Face, we chose to meld several varietals into one.  Just as the band members would segue through various musical styles, this wine's far reaching flavors melt seamlessly from one to the next', a signature that he says '...celebrates the diversity and freedom of experimentation' the Dead and their fans soso enjoyed.  To Mark Pinkus, the GM of Grateful Dead Properties for Rhino Records, Beaman nailed it like a soaring Jerry Garcia guitar solo: 'Wines That Rock's passion for the band really shows in how hard they worked to reflect the mood and essence of the recordings'.
