The Martian Hop

What do you mean "Is that Martian Ranch Wine a white?" What kinda dadblamed fool thinks a Martian would be anything but red? Or maybe green, we'll give you that one.

Martian Ranch, people. MARTIAN. The god of war, Jeff Wayne's career, and RED WINE.

Let's be honest here, we aren't going to be sending billions of dollars into space just to collect soil samples. What we're really doing is finding new directions to take our wine. Get it? The powerful rich wouldn't care about science, but if they find caviar on Venus, we'd have a space base in a MONTH.

And that's maybe why Martian Ranch, which existing on Earth, makes this mysteriously tasty red wine. Some say they make it themselves, from the very best grapes they can find. Others say Martian Ranch exists over a wormhole that allows for a person to appear at the base of a black marble horse thanks to the Philadelphia Experiment holding open a gateway across time and space. Who can say for sure which one of these is the more scientific answer? All we know is this: where Mars is concerned, things get strange ... and delicious.

Order your dual three-pack now. You never know when THEY might step in and take down this sale ... because it knows too much.

Features

2009 Martian Ranch Grenache 750ml 3-Pack

With a deep dark yet vibrant red color this Grenache starts off with aromas of red fruit and spice.  Leading off the front palate with bright acidity and hints of red fruit.  Subtleties of raspberry, herbs and a touch of mint finish things off. Almost any sort of grilled meat will be enhanced by eating it with some Grenache in your glass. The  variety also likes spice, so sausage, slow-cooked stews, and any dish with paprika or ground arbol chilies will bring out the best in the wine (and vice-versa).

2009 Martian Ranch Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley 750ml 3-Pack

A nose of  big dark fruits with a wisp of  pepper and herbs. Dark, earthy and meaty on the palate with dark red fruit and a dusting of spice. This wine is rich and balanced.
