According to website, the collection features wines made from California grapes. The 2009 Red Satin is a blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah with flavors of cocoa powder, vanilla and black cherry. It was aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels. The 2012 White Silk is made from Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc and has notes of lychee, pear and honey. It was aged in stainless steel tanks.
“Wine plays an important role in Fifty Shades of Grey, adding to the sensuality that pervades a number of scenes. I’ve always had a penchant for good wine, so combining two of my passions to blend Red Satin and White Silk was a natural extension of the series,'' the author explains on the website.
