Purple LinePurple Line Urban Winery is a small family owned winery born out of their long romance and passion for good wine.
Kate (Owner/Tasting room manager) and George (Owner/Winemaker/cellar rat).
Owners Kate and George take great pride in their urban winery, right off the freeway and blocks from the historic downtown
Oroville area! You will be plesantly suprised by what you find when you visit Purple Line the first time, not your oridonary winery. First of all on Wednesday nights starting at 5pm they hold a potluck dinner, bring a favorite dish to share with others. Where else can you buy a great bottle of wine out for dinner for $22 or under?
Second, they have Tapas on Friday nights stating at 5pm, small plates to sample from four differnt local establishments, again a great night out with friends and enjoy more wine in the comfort of their outdoor patio! Both Wednesday and Friday nights include free live music, a great time had by all.
I would try all of their wines as they are all great in this writer's opinion.
Little Red Panties is Kate's blend of their 2012 varietals of Pinot Noir, Grenache, Malbec and Merlot. Like Little Red Panties this blend is soft,
supple,seductive and provocative. It starts with a gentle bouquet of berries and spice. A swirl of the glass reveals long and slender legs and a ruby red color.
Then the Little Red Panties invade your mouth with flavors
of dark fruit, cherries, cloves and black pepper. The body is enticing and permeates your imagination.
The tannins are suprisingly supple but lingering as a faint vanilla pleasures your mouth followed by a hint of dark chocolate.
