Mother’s Day is just around the corner – May 9th, to be exact. Sure, you could get your mother flowers and a nice set of earrings…again. But this year, why not go above and beyond for the woman who’s gone above and beyond to raise the awesome person you’ve become? Give her something out of the ordinary this Mother’s Day – something she’ll appreciate, enjoy, and most of all, something you can savor together on a bright, spring Sunday. Choosing a bottle of Rio Vista wine that reflects her tastes is a personal and thoughtful gift that she’s sure to love. We know we’ll be showing up with a bottle of Rio Vista wine this Mother’s Day. Okay, maybe two. If you’re unsure of what wine your mother might appreciate most, here are some suggestions to get you started.
2019 Estate Wild Rose Rosẽ
You truly can’t go wrong with this beautiful rosé. This blend of Barbara and Tempranillo offers sweet cherry and wild berry on the nose and follows with strawberry, pomegranate, and rhubarb on your palate. With its strong tannic structure, this wine is equal parts dynamic and delicious. And we can’t complain about how it looks in the glass, either. Mom is sure to rave about this delightful spring wine. (You’re welcome.)
2019 Estate Chardonnay
Bright and lively with a touch of elegance. Sound like anyone you know? Mom will adore this balanced chardonnay with notes like honeydew, jasmine, and lemon. This chardonnay has dimension and richness while its vibrant acidity leads to a clean, refreshing finish. It’s a wine everyone can enjoy while celebrating Mom on a bright May afternoon. The best part is – Mom will be tickled to hear that this delightful wine reminds you of her.
2018 Estate Loony Red
We often refer to our Loony Red as a “palate pleaser” since it’s enjoyed by just about everyone who tries it. It’s a rich blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. You’ll delight in the aromas of rose petals and herbs followed by flavors of baked cherries and dusty chocolate. Need we say more? This wine may sound too rich and intense for a light spring day, but the Loony Red’s intensity is effortlessly balanced by the freshness added by the tannins and acidity. Serve it up with a late afternoon Mother’s Day lunch and you’re sure to be the favorite kid (if you weren’t already.)
Ahh, the Tempranillo. This red wine is unique in both its flavor and structure and we’re all about it. With earthy notes and varied texture, flavors of dried tobacco leaf, baking spices, and a lingering cedar finish will take your Mother’s Day celebrations to the next level. This beautiful wine stands out confidently amongst the rest – a testament to a mother who has continuously been a pillar of strength and source of love.
