Bottle Rock: 4 Musician-Backed Wines, Ranked By a Master Sommelier
Master sommelier Laura Fiorvanti drinks her way through the good and the bad of musician-made vino.
Il Palagio Message in a Bottle 2015
"The vintage is young and fruity with red plums and cherries. There's also a little earthiness: a touch of tomato and herbs. It's pretty good!"
Jon Bon Jovi
Diving into Hampton Water Rosé 2017
"It has fresh strawberry and raspberry notes, not any hint of candy. There's not a lot of acid, but it's well made. I hate the packaging, though."
Newton-John Cellars Pink & Blue Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
"An everyday, pour-yourself-aglass-at-night style of red with dark fruits like blackberries and black plums. There's a bit of coffee, too."
LVE Chardonnay 2014
"There's a burn in the nose when you first smell it, like it's a fuller or richer wine. It smells like creamed corn and butter."
