Here are the wines and labels....

2007 Rolling Stones Forty Licks Merlot...$13.99
"To capture the essence of Forty Licks, the 40 tracks that cover the Rolling Stones' career, Winemaker Mark Beaman chose to work with Merlot. This varietal captures the comfort of turning to a solid classic that stands the test of time. Much like the band itself, Mendocino County winemaking stays true to its roots with a consistent and confident character not caught up in fads or trends The 2007 Merlot captures the attitude of Mendocino County’s style. Aromas of black cherry, with hints of mint are followed by rich flavors of plum, black cherry, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cedar. This dry red wine is a fine match for herb-roasted chicken, grilled beef or smoky chili." --Wines that Rock Website

2007 Forty Licks Merlot - "It's very good and tastes purple and complex. I'd hang my hat on this one" -- The New York Times

2006 Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon...$13.99
Listening to Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon over and over on his iPod, Mark ventured into new territory in wine making. To capture the intense, brooding character of The Dark Side of the Moon he turned to a classic wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. A varietal with a deep, complex character that takes a relaxed environment to fully appreciate, Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the hauntingly dense, timeless character of Pink Floyd’s masterpiece album. The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon captures the attitude of Mendocino County’s style. Aromas of black currant and cherry are followed by rich flavors of cassis, toasted vanilla bean, and hints of chocolate. Enjoy this rich dry red wine with hearty chicken dishes, beef and lamb, and red sauced pasta." -- Wines that Rock Website
2006 The Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon - "Big Nose. Very aromatically's really dark, a lot of people will like this" -- The New York Times

2008 Woodstock Chardonnay....$13.99
The Woodstock Chardonnay opens with an enjoyable eclectic mixture of rich pear, mineral, and papaya aromas followed by fresh flavors of Asian pear apple, citrus, and tropical fruit with great acid on the finish. Or as Mark likes to say, “sunshine in a bottle”. Enjoy this rich dry white wine with salmon, chicken, creamy soups, and white sauced pasta." - Wines that Rock Website

2008 Woodstock Chardonnay - "This is very fresh and has a simplistic chardonnay-type taste...I like the finish" -- The New York Times
