Actor, cultural icon, rebel without a cause. James Dean will forever be the face of 1950s youth and one of the brightest stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Our tribute is an equally charming California red, and our expert Kristina Spencer calls the blend “as gorgeous as its namesake.”

This blend marries Merlot (67%) with other well-known varieties, like Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Merlot imparts silky, plummy richness, while a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon delivers fresh currant character. California’s fruity Petite Sirah adds red berry compote notes, while rare Petit Verdot completes the fresh and lively profile.

A true Hollywood-worthy red, our James Dean tribute offers ripe plum and red berry aromas with intriguing savory notes. The palate’s juicy red-fruit flavors will pair perfectly with roasted lamb, creamy risottos, tomato-sauced pastas and more.

Make sure to snag a piece of Hollywood with this fantastic red blend.

Classic Movie Pairing: Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
The movie that cemented James Dean’s status as a Hollywood icon also captured the angst of a generation and set the blueprint for a plethora of teenage movies to follow. Director Nicholas Ray infused this tale of juvenile delinquency with real emotional depth and a classical tone, and populated it with terrific young actors like Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo. Enjoy it all over again with a glass of this hearty California red, well-suited for the highs and lows of Ray’s drama.
