New Beauzeaux Red Wine Introduced 'With a Wink'
Napa | CA

NAPA, Calif., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ - Juggling too many balls these days? Looking for some light-hearted relaxation with a seriously good wine? Introducing Beauzeaux(R) {bo-zo}.

Beauzeaux is a new red wine blend made from eight different varietals. And, with a name like Beauzeaux, Winemaker Bob Masyczek knew it had to be good. Bob was playing around with several varietals in the cellar, mostly Zinfandel and Syrah, and small amounts of Petite Sirah, Charbono, Grenache and others, when he hit upon the perfect mix. Show off to your wine geek friends when you tell them it also contains 2 percent Lagrein, a red grape variety mentioned in the 17th century records of a Benedictine monastery.

So what do you get from a wine that is a little bit Masterpiece Theatre and a little bit Madcap? Masyczek says, "I think wine lovers will be delighted by the wine's ruby red color, its aromas of red raspberry, spicy black pepper and cinnamon and its juicy ripe black cherry flavors and lingering finish. I made this wine to entertain all the senses."

"Wine lovers are showing a fondness for red wine blends," said Beauzeaux Marketing Manager Megan Kilbride. "According to IRI data, sales of California red wine blends in the United States increased 50 percent in 2005."

While the contents in each bottle of Beauzeaux Red Wine are sure to put a smile on your face, so will the packaging. Beauzeaux is bottled with a striking "four act" label. Each of the four labels features an illustration of a whimsical French juggler in different positions, demonstrating playfulness and a carefree - but engaging - attitude. In keeping with this theme, each bottle comes with four easy-to-learn parlor tricks - perfect pizza night entertainment for wine lovers and their friends. And the capper? Nothing but a screwcap would do to preserve the wine's lush aromas and fresh style. No joke - a screwcap is handy at picnics.

Beauzeaux is offered nationally at a suggested retail price of $9.99.
