Little Black Dress Wines

Little Black Dress wine

A few weeks ago, we received two wine samples from the Little Black Dress wine company. These wines were fun and affordable.

The Little Black Dress Rosé was produced with grapes from California. Grape varieties used in production of this Rosé included: Gewürztraminer, Muscat, Chardonnay and Zinfandel.

The wine was a light pink color with an orange hue. The aroma was faint with hints of flowers, white peaches, raspberries and spice. The wine offered a taste of white peaches, roses and tropical fruits. The crisp finish was yummy. The wine was slightly sweet with 18.0 grams/l of residual sugar. The wine was 12.5% alcohol. The winery suggests that this wine is delightful to pair with light summer dishes  including salads, fish, grilled meats and fresh cheese. The wine is also suggested for an aperitif.

The second wine from Little Black Dress was the Diva Red. The grapes were sourced from California and include several varieties including: Zinfandel, Tannat, Mourvedre, Garnacha, and Malbec. The Diva Red was a translucent dark ruby color. The aroma was of black fruits. The taste offered notes of blackberries, and black raspberries with a hint of leather, earthiness and baking spices. The wine was dry and medium-bodied. The finish was fruity and long. Wine pairing suggestions included meat dishes and spicy cuisine. This wine may be enjoyed as an aperitif.

The Little Black Dress wine company was founded in August 2006. The name seeks to create a relationship to the idea that the little black dress is perfect for accessories and that one can accessorize with the Little Black Dress wines. It is certainly a creative idea.

Little Black Dress wines include an assortment of wines. Look in your local stores for other LBD wines including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio and Moscato. The winemaker for Little Black Dress wines is Margaret Leonardi from Northern California. Her philosophy for crafting wine is summed up in this comment on the lbd wines website, “I aim to make wines that are approachable, affordable, and delicious. This means creating wines that can be appreciated while curling up on the couch to watch The Bachelor on Monday evenings, hanging out with your girlfriends on Wednesday nights, flirting on date nights, or relaxing on Friday evenings at home over dinner with friends.”
