Spring 2022 Wines

INTRODUCING THE SPRING 2022 LABELS AND VARIETALS

Carnation

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley

Forever a symbol of friendship within Alpha Chi Omega, the red carnation is a joyful reminder of the Bond shared among sisters. The flower is an illustration of everything that is noble, good and true, and it connects members to one another and the Fraternity.

We introduce you to Carnation. Our flagship Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic representation of the appellation’s preeminent varietal. Notes of of black cherry, blackberry and plum are complemented by hits of toasted oak, dried currant and baking spice. Fine-grained tannins and ample brightness on the palate give way to a polished mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish.
$75 / Bottle

Untold Stories – Hera

2020 Pinot Noir – Santa Barbara County

From the archives of Alpha Chi Omega, celebrate sisters and the gifts given in recognition of significant Alpha Chi Omega moments. Award of Achievement recipient Marcia Clapp DeRocco (Alpha Chi, Butler University) presented her sculpture of Hera, Alpha Chi Omega’s patron goddess, as a gift when Alpha Chi Omega moved into its Indianapolis headquarters on Washington Boulevard in 1961.

We introduce you to Untold Stories – Hera. This Chardonnay has aromas of cherries, raspberries, blackberries, and brown sugar with notes of baking spices. On the palate, the wine opens with bright, fruit flavors of strawberries, leading to a round mouthfeel on the mid-palate and soft, velvety tannins on a long, elegant finish.
$45 / Bottle

Three Stars

2020 Cuveé Blanc – Napa Valley

Derived from Alpha Chi Omega’s coat of arms, a trio of stars has been an integral part of the sisterhood’s history. From the Star Studio supported by Alpha Chi Omega at MacDowell to the Three Star Pride logo introduced at the 1983 National Convention, this outward symbol of honor holds a place of significance for members.

We introduce you to Three Stars. This elegant white wine blend is alluring and complex, with a sensuous offering of tropical fruits, white flowers and subtle spice. The nose is like a bouquet of flowers and jumps from the glass with ripe lemon, white peach and orange blossom followed by notes of toast and white pepper. On the tongue, lemon bursts forward with pineapple and other tropical fruit, with undertones of vanilla. The finish is bright and zingy and mellows with vanilla and subtle spices in its length.
$35 / Bottle
