A Salute to the USA… with Wine

ThinkstockPhotos-672023968

A wine-fueled patriotic tribute to American history is now available at your local ABC Fine Wine & Spirits. The Federalist, a line of wines inspired by the icons and forefathers of our country, salutes the long-storied history of wine in the United States.

The Federalist Wines are the ideal bottles to have for any red, white and blue celebration, and it just so happens that this weekend is one such occasion. So in the spirit of American pride on this 241st anniversary of the signing of the declaration of independence, raise a toast to freedom, patriotism and the Star-Spangled Banner with a glass full of the Federalist.

 

Federalist Chardonnay. With Lady Liberty standing tall on the label (earlier vintages featured a quill), Federalist Chardonnay is a big, bold white wine that pairs well with grilled chicken and Southern potato salad. Aromas of pear, lemon and spice greet your every sip, just as the Statue of Liberty welcomes weary travelers.

Federalist Cabernet Sauvignon. Benjamin Franklin was the quintessential American. We still look up to his influence, tireless politics and innovative creations. Cabernet Sauvignon is similar in the wine world. The varietal can be many in many different styles and pair with an array of food–it’s the red wine all wine drinkers know, understand and appreciate. Try Federalist’s version (it goes well with the BBQ you’re planning to make this weekend).

Federalist Zinfandel. A tribute to our No. 1 president (and we do mean that literally and in terms of competition), Federalist Zinfandel is a red fruit bomb with firm tannins and incredible structure. Only George Washington would do on a wine this well-rounded. Try it with various BBQ sauces or grilled burgers.
