Seven Daughters

Beloved, you are my sister, you are my daughter, you are my face; you are me.”   — Toni Morrison

The Seven Daughters wines are fun.  Easy drinking, eminently quaffable; the wines you open when you want to just drink wine, not over-evaluate your beverage.  These are playful little table wines, perfect for big parties or girl’s night.  The white was a fantastic aroma due to the muscat, the red is a juicy mélange of berries.  The perfect pairing for the girl’s night in, is canapés.  A Wine Harlot favorite is Cream Cheese Cucumber Smoked Salmon Rosettes.

Seven Daughters White Winemaker Blend Details: 13.5% alcohol.  Cork closure.  Appellation: California.  A blend of seven white grapes: riesling, symphony, chardonnay, orange muscat, gewürztraminer, sauvignon blanc and french colombard.

Seven Daughters Red Winemaker Blend Details:  14.2% alcohol.  Cork closure.  Appellation: California.  A blend of seven grapes: syrah, merlot, zinfandel, carignane, sangiovese, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon.

The suggested retail is $15 USD, actual retail varies, Wine Searcher has the range from $7-12 and is widely available in mass merchants such as Target.  This was a media sample generously provided by Terlato Wines.

The music match is “The Blower’s Daughter” by Damien Rice from the album O.  Open a few bottles, put on your favorite music, make some snacks, unwind and catch up with your best friends.  Isn’t that what wine is really all about?
