City Winery Chicago produces new wine: West Loop Red


City Winery West Loop Red 2013, California

City Winery Chicago’s third version of the infamous West Loop Red is coming! Made by our winemaker Robert Kowal (@cwvinewhisperer), the 2013 West Loop Red is a great blend featuring highlights of bold red varietals blended into a conducive concoction that is quite the sipper!

Bottles in 750mL and Magnum (1.5L) formats will be available soon at our retail store where other City Winery wines are also available for purchase!

The breakdown: 36% Zinfandel, 26% Petite Sirah, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot 

Tasting Notes: Aromatic with purple flowers and damson plum, cassis and sage. Ripe and dried red fruit and black, brambly berries. Cinnamon, nutmeg and brown baking spices with vanilla bean. Significant tannin and elevated alcohol to balance out this wine. Should be a crowd favorite. 

Food Pairing Suggestions: Try with City Winery’s duck tacos, skirt steak or the juicy City Winery burger!

Music Pairing Suggestions: Drink this heady wine with the ever rockin’ Leon Russell as he graces us with his presence February 24 & 25!  With a full band and Russell’s charismatic piano playing and singing, the full sounds reminiscent of New Orleans will keep you swirling and sipping to the beat.
