The signature wine line of Miranda Lambert!
When Miranda Lambert brought her store, The Pink Pistol, to her hometown of Lindale, Texas, Red 55 Winery and Hemingway Tasting Room was the perfect addition!
Red 55 Winery is located inside the famous store, and offers every guest a relaxed, unique place to sip and sample their variety of private label winds honoring the country artist. There are a total of 9 wines inside the winery, and they’re all named after unique facets of Miranda’s character.
We sat down with Rick and Bev Lambert to here the stories behind each bottle label (wines listed alphabetically):
Belle – Sweet Red
This wine exhibits the attributes of Miranda Lambert. Simply put, it means the most beautiful. With her true southern raisin’, she epitomizes southern hospitality and beauty while being a bit on the wild side. This sweet red is a mouthful of ripe cherry and raspberry that will tingle the palate. The finish is so silky smooth, it leaves you wanting more.
County Road 233 – Merlot
Our most robust spirit is full of fruity flavor and powerful color yet smooth in texture and delivery. With its ripe berry essence the aroma lingers as long as the explosive finish. This dry velvety Merlot is endowed with just the right balance of power and finesse that make it an excellent companion to steak and pastas with full bodied red sauce and dark chocolate.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – Sweet White
This alluring, radiant wine – with overtones of ripe pears, honey and golden raisins – is lusciously aromatic and perfect for those who prefer the sweeter things in life. It is so deliciously perfumed that it has been teased as dessert in a bottle! Just like a Crazy Ex, you’ll be seduced over and over by this charmer.
Electric Pink – White Zinfandel
This semi-sweet White Zinfandel is brilliantly pink with delicious berry taste and aroma. Just like Miranda’s famous electric pink guitar, it often produces a sudden sense of thrilling excitement!
Kerosene – Pinot Grigio
Light yet pleasingly soft with hints of pear and ripe apple. This fruit forward wine comes across as slightly sweet with a finish that is crisp and clean. This versatile white can pair with most any dish or be enjoyed by itself in the shade of your favorite tree.
Platinum – Almond Sparking Wine
This white sparkling wine is naturally fermented, with just a hint of pure almond added so it’s guaranteed to dazzle your guests. A must-have sparkling wine to make any occasion extra special. Great with desserts, cuddling, hot tubs, picnics, fireplaces, brunches, and parties.
Red 55 – Cabernet Sauvignon
Named after Miranda’s prized first pickup, a candy apple red 1955 step-side, this beautiful cherry colored wine is smooth, medium bodied with a mellow berry aroma. Just like Miranda’s vintage ’55, this wine is sure to be a classic.
Texas Medley – Red Blemd
Our blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre is complex with a robust structure and a silky texture. This deep garnet wine offers a bouquet of oak, leather and blackberry aromas and pairs perfectly with grilled meats or roasted duck.
White Liar – Unoaked Chardonnay
In 2009 Miranda released her single “White Liar” from the album Revolution. In an effort to celebrate, we decided to honor her with this ever popular Chardonnay – the world’s most popular white wine grape. It is dry, crisp and un-oaked, so not to overtake the true flavor of the grape. This wine has rich apple, citrus and tropical fruit aromas.
If you don’t know which wine you want to try (or you want to try them all!) they offer flights.
