"I've become fascinated by the winemaking process."
NASHVILLE, TN – November 14, 2017 – "I like a good cabernet from a Napa Valley vine" sings Country Music star, award-winning TV host and Army veteran Craig Morgan in his song "There's A Whole Lot More To Me." Art becomes life as the "country Renaissance man" (Rolling Stone) has partnered with Lot18.com to produce the limited-edition Cabernet Sauvignon, Old Tattoo.
"I enjoy a glass of wine with a great meal or after a show and over the last few years I've become fascinated by the winemaking process," shared Craig. "As I learned more about wine cultivation, blending and aging I wanted to establish my own wine that reflects my favorite flavors and tastes."
Having spent 17 years in service to our country in the Army and Army Reserves, Craig proudly proclaims his love for our country. His patriotism is conveyed in Old Tattoo — the wine's name and label are inspired by the American flag ink that appears to live beneath the skin of Craig's left arm.
Craig personally worked with the team at Lot18.com to craft a complex wine to suit his love of bold, earthy flavors, with production limited to 450 cases. Hints of coffee, cocoa, currant, dark cherry, graphite and plum tease the palate and the wine pairs well with grilled red meats and wild game, perfectly suited for the lifetime outdoorsman. Craig Morgan's Old Tattoo Cabernet Sauvignon is available for order at Lot18.com, Craig's concert dates and The Gallery at Morgan Farms in downtown Dickson, Tennessee beginning November 15.
Craig Morgan Old Tattoo Cabernet Sauvignon - This exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon was carefully curated by country music star and Army veteran Craig Morgan. The grapes were sourced from prized vineyards in the heart of Paso Robles, and grown in soils rich with minerals in order to produce a plush, yet structured wine. Efforts were taken in the vineyard to ensure that the vines yielded smaller grape clusters, and layers of complexity were achieved through aging in a combination of American and French oak. Old Tattoo exudes familiarity and freedom with its enticing aroma and elegant finish, encouraging a sense of reminiscence and pure enjoyment.
