The Red: A can of 79% Grenache and 21% Syrah, all Central Coast grapes, fizzed up to just below the legal limit for the sparkling wine tax. Alcohol hits only 13% abv and it’s dry. Get it while it’s cold. It should age well for a couple of years.
The Bulle-Moose Rousse pours up fun - you aren't drinking from the can, are you? - with pretty pink bubbles on top of the purple wine. The color is actually more like medium ruby. A nice frizzante stays after the bubbles dissipate. The nose is deep and lean, with more earth than fruit there, and on the palate. The savory notes for which Randall Grahm is known as present, even in an offering that’s made just for fun.
This fizzy California Vermentino tastes almost like one from the Italian islands. It smells like one, too, with savory, salty aromas meeting the California citrus. Think of it as the midpoint between Italian Vermentino and California Sauvignon Blanc. The palate shows off a beautiful salinity - from Randall Grahm, no surprise - and zesty lemon and orange peel. It's a refreshing wine that begs to be taken outdoors.

Nose of almond shell, sea breeze, and lemon peel.

Lots of lemony acidity and minerality on the palate. Very crisp and refreshing.

Lean, zippy sparkling vermentino...from a can! Very cool.

Salt & grapefruit & ocean mist. Drinks like a summer day at the beach.
