“It’s all happening.” Penny Lane’s mantra for living life in the moment and enjoying the now encapsulates the spirit of Almost Famous, the 2000 classic film that follows a shy high schooler as he tours with a rising rock band. Crafted to capture the same carefree vibe, Almost Famous Carignan is a rockin’ new red wine.

The grapes were sourced from Lodi, “one of the top wine regions in the country,” where California winemakers “have quietly started producing some of the state’s best wines” ( Lodi benefits from a warm climate and cool fog, which helps prolong the grapes’ ‘hang time’ on the vine for extra-concentrated flavors. It’s the perfect environment for Carignan, a thick-skinned grape variety that needs plenty of time to ripen and develop concentrated flavors.

Almost Famous Carignan is loaded with juicy black cherry and plum fruit notes. While delicious to sip on its own, it’ll really shine when paired with rich meats, hearty pastas or full-flavored vegetarian dishes.
