American History

Buy wine! Save wine glasses!

Okay, I highly DOUBT that YOU read the Constitution as often as I DO, so I just wanted to let you know about a little tidbit hidden in there. 32nd Amendment states, "All wine glasses that do not carry wine for a period exceeding 97 days can no longer be referred to as 'wine glasses' but instead must be called 'krgjuuntzip.'"

How is that pronounced? NOBODY KNOWS! See, that's the point: it's a use 'em or lose 'em sorta thing. Don't wanna drink wine? Then you won't be able to vocalize the vessels whose intention was to hold wine. A little trick played on us by our founding fathers to keep us happy and drinking! THANKS, GEORGE WASHINGTON!

But hey, I didn't come here to talk history. I came here to WARN YOU about the DANGERS of leaving wine glasses UN-WINED. So, if it's getting towards 97 days, it's time to STOCK UP or STOCK OUT!

And what better wine to use than some of this Swami Pinot Noir? It's FRUIT-FORWARD and APPROACHABLE, with a perfume of SANDALWOOD, CHAI SPICE, and TOFFEE that leads to fleshy PLUM and BLACK CHERRY on the CREAMY PALATE! Just how Ben Franklin would have WANTED IT!

Features

2009 Swami Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast 750ml 6-Pack

Fruit-forward and approachable, Swami is an exotic and earthy Sonoma pinot noir. Gorgeous, globe-trotting perfume of sandalwood, chai spice and toffee lead to fleshy plum and black cherry on the creamy palate.

At Swami, they believe a great glass of pinot noir should be both awe-inspiring and accessible. Sixth-generation Sonoman Jeff Bundschu has spent his life exploring the natural treasures of the Sonoma Coast—as a vintner, cyclist, surfer and avid locavore. He and winemaker Keith Emerson have channeled their passion and extensive knowledge into sourcing and crafting a pinot from these cool, coastal valleys that boasts classic character and complexity, remains utterly approachable and affordable for everyday enjoyment.  Oh yeah, and the label glows in the dark.
