Shannon Ridge Family of Wines announces the release of Playtime Wines Red Blend, from Lake County, California, which retails at $12.99.

The bottle label art is a throwback to the era when posters of pin-up stars adorned various World War II aircraft. Playtime’s Red Blend, adorned with a label depicting a redheaded pin-up, is a combination of Zinfandel with small amounts of Grenache, Petit Verdot and Barbera. The wine is ripe and juicy, with soft tannins and a smooth finish.

In addition to the Zinfandel-based Red Blend, two other Playtime wines will be released soon: Playtime “Blonde” Chardonnay, and Playtime “Strawberry Blonde” – a slightly dry rosé.
