FOREVER MISS AMERICA COLLECTION
The 2019 Forever Miss America Collection is a celebratory sampling of the barrel treasures in Carmody McKnight’s cellar winery. A one-time-only glimpse into nature’s crowning achievement…the final assemblage.
Hand-picked from our legendary westside Paso Robles estate, grapes are free of artificial, commercialized manipulation. These are noble grapes nurturing in the magma of three volcanoes within the most nutrient prolific vineyard ever studied. Super-organic. Super-sustainable!
These collectible wines are a return to the central purpose of natural wine – celebrating the love of life, the gift of health and consummate well-being!
Each bottle purchased directly benefits the Miss America Foundation. If ever wines could measure up to their 100 years of unmatched scholastic and academic achievement, this commemorative collection would rise to the occasion.
Aged for 20 months in neutral barrels, the deep ruby wine brings fathomless depth and luxurious blackcurrant liquor, cassis, cherry, licorice and smoke. The constantly evolving spectrum of aromas and flavors is enveloped by firm structure and medium acidity that will present a rich velvety structure for years to come.
Aged for 16 months in neutral french oak, the classic Bordeaux blending grape is showcased as the quintessence of the varietal. In the glass, medium ruby color, vivacious aromas of violet, dried herbs and red fruit. On the palate, vibrant cranberry with red currant and medium acidity finishes long with red fruit, graphite and spice.
The 2019 vintage rivals time-honored St. Emilion Grand Crus in depth and complexity. This deep ruby wine needs no coaxing to unfurl fragrant perfume of violet, chocolate covered cherries, crushed blueberries and eucalyptus over char-grilled meat. Full-bodied with firm, ripe tannins and seamless black fruit interknit with spice and forest floor, finishing long and decadent.
