All Shook Up Over Elvis Presley Wine
We have to admit we're not the hugest fans of the King. That's not to say we don't like his music, or that we couldn't watch him "act" his way through a couple movies...we're just saying we're not the rabid, drooly, "Oh my God he's so DREAMY" kind of fans. That doesn't mean we'd be against sipping some Elvis wine, however. After all, they wouldn't attach a celebrity's name to a shoddy product, right?
There are three main varieties, detailed below, which are available from Graceland Cellars. They're available by the case individually, or you can pick up a three pack that includes a bottle of each for around $40 (assuming they ship to your state). We'll try to get more info for you; check below for the winery's notes on each wine type. Pick up a few bottles and you'll be shaking your hips in no time.
Graceland Cellars 2004 Blue Suede Chardonnay
This bright California Chardonnay has attractive floral, citrus, pear and appley aromas followed by a rich, complex beam of apple pie, fig, apricot and peach flavors. Light toasty oak and hints of butter and vanilla on the finish round out this nicely balanced wine.
Graceland Cellars 2003 The King Cabernet Sauvignon
A typical new world Cabernet with a vibrant, ruby red color. This wine is lush, ripe and juicy, with intense black cherry, current and blackberry fruit that's smooth and focused. Subtle toasty oak flavors are accented by modest but dry tannins and a hint of spice. A soft and well-rounded wine with a smooth finish.
Graceland Cellars 2004 Jailhouse Red Merlot
This California Merlot is young and vibrant. Aromas of berries and fresh herbs are followed by the varietal characteristics of red currant, green olives, sage and wild berries. French barrel aging contributes notes of toasty vanilla and creates the soft, supple tannins typical of Merlot. An easy drinking medium bodied wine that your sure to enjoy.
