Celebrate Special Occasions with Leer Vineyards in 2016
I’ll be ringing in the new year tonight and I hope I can make it to see the ball drop. For the past two years I fell asleep well before midnight. As a matter of fact I don’t recall the last time I made it to see that ball drop on television. Recently I had the opportunity to include Leer Vineyards in my holiday gift guide. Celebrate special occasions with Leer Vineyards in 2016, their wines help support wounded warriors.
Leer Vineyards donates $1.50 of the purchase price per bottle of wine towards the purchase of a tax and mortgage free home for a wounded warrior. I love products that give back so this is a huge bonus for me. Knowing that supporting this company helps supports wounded warriors as well. Now all your celebrations or even the glass you have for dinner helps with a good cause.
I received a bottle of the Heroic Red and Valiant White from Leer Vineyards. I love white wines but I actually really enjoyed the red from Leer.
Heroic Red shows aromas of boysenberry with hints of leather, cedar and cigar tobacco. Flavors are of raspberry jam, chocolate and black pepper, with a faint echo of blake tea on the long finish. This blend contains 58% Syrah, 29% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Valiant White shows aromas of peach and orange blossoms, the circus flavors are intense, peaches and tropical fruits dominate. It’s a soft and luscious mouthful with a hint of effervescence for a beautiful liveliness and a balance to the sweetness. While crisp and sweet this Moscato is a perfect pairing with spicy seafood or chicken and is amazing while paired with bleu cheese and desserts that include pears or peaches.
Cofféy is the official spokesperson for Heroic Red/Valiant White and his song Mr. Red White and Blue is inspirational and powerful. Check out the video above.
