Naked Rebel

“All I’m writing is just what I feel, that’s all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland.”  ― Jimi Hendrix

Naked Rebel American Gothic Southern California 2013

You know Wine Harlots is all about Naked Rebel.  Rebels Without Clothes? Defiant nude mutineers, count us in.

Being naked is being fearless. Being courageous enough to take a leap of faith into the unknown and following your heart’s passion. Wine Harlots salute the gutsy, the brave, and the foolhardy. (Especially the foolhardy.) And we especially laud our friend Mills who cast off the shackles of Tyranny of the Day Job and ventured forth to Montana on his fly-fishing guide quest.

The Wine Harlots caveat is to be a revolutionary, not a rebel. Rebels fail, revolutionaries prevail. Word to the wise, not everyone can rock a ‘stache, and if you’re going to be a naked rebel, be sure to use sunblock.

The Naked Rebel red is a solid wine once you get past the aggressive irreverent marketing. Although the wine is blend of cabernet sauvignon and syrah, it’s reminiscent of a juicy, fruity zinfandel. Our friend Ben at Benito’s Wine Reviews concurs. We suppose the perfect pairing would be a naked steak, but the Wine Harlots are feeling uncharacteristically modest and will be covering up with Herb Crusted Venison Filets with Horseradish Sauce. The music match is naturally “Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol from the album of the same name.

The details: 14.5% alcohol. Cork closure. Appellation: California Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Syrah 50%. Retail: $20 USD. This vintage appears to be sold out but you might be about to source the remaining few bottles from these wine purveyors. Produced by Naked Rebel Winery/Rebel Coast Winery.
