Celebrate the victory of the Los Angeles Rams over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, February 13, 2022, for Super Bowl LVI with this wine.

Los Angeles-based winemaker Malek Amrani is immortalizing this historic moment with this 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Los Carneros “The Ram.” Los Carneros (Spanish for The Rams) was the first established sub-appellation of Napa Valley in 1981.

The Vice is a Napa Valley luxury wine brand made in small batches. Each batch is crafted from single grape varietals sourced from hand selected vineyards that best express the grape varietal and the region that it comes from. The Vice is a result of passionate labor, sustainable farming, a long expertise of the wine industry and a current understanding of consumer wine trends.

“The Ram” is made from 100% unfiltered and unfined Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from the foothills of Mount Veeder, sustainably crafted with minimal winemaking intervention. The wine was aged for 22 months in two New Medium Toast oak barrels (1 French & 1 American). Only 600 bottles were produced.

Bright aromas of black cherry marmalade, violet, sandalwood and hazelnut wrestle for your attention. The palate is bright and concentrated with plum and toffee flavors from the entrance to the mid-palate. Silky tannins linger to a long finish with caramel and chocolate. Drink now or hold if you can resist.
