Are you looking for a new wine to enjoy during your game night this summer?
The Lions Head Collection was born bold – dedicated to creating connection through incredible next generation wines.
Panthera Chardonnay – SRP: $45
The Panthera wines are inspired by the subtleties in strength – captured through the bright acidity created by the cool climate in the Sonoma Coast and coaxed into powerful flavors by the winemaking team at the blending table. Panthera Chardonnay showcases the dynamism and energy of the Russian River Valley as this wine displays both a vibrant aspect of fruit and a confident oak profile. This wine presents beautiful layers of crisp, bright Asian pear and golden apple that lead to luscious notes of lemon curd developed from malolactic fermentation. The deft baseline of toasted oak introduces notes of buttered French toast and hints of crème brûlée, which are complemented by a signature backbone of acidity nurtured on the Sonoma Coast.
Lion Tamer Cabernet Sauvignon – SRP: $65
Lion Tamer wines challenge the norms of traditional winemaking through experimentation in high elevation winegrowing and a bold use of Malbec in the final blend. This Napa Cab is plush in texture with heady aromas of blackberries, black cherries and notes of freshly ground coffee. A touch of Malbec develops a softness in the tannins, making this a wonderfully smooth and seamless wine. These mouthwatering tannins surround the palate, framing layered elements of bright blueberry, subtle smoke and deliciously rich mocha. The result is a wine that’s perfectly balanced, with well-integrated sweet oak notes presenting on the lengthy, elegant finish.
I’ve always had an affinity for finding hidden words whether that be unscrambling letters or in a highlighter frenzy Wordsearch hunt. However, as great as that “aha!” moment feels, it’s a fairly lonely victory. Luckily, there’s a way you can show off just how laser-focused your eyesight is… as long as it’s better than your opponent’s.
Time to see just how skilled of a word hunter you are with Wordsearch! This fast-paced game gives this solitary classic activity some serious competitive edge as you race against your opponent to find words first. The player with the most tiles on the board at the end of the game wins! Keep your eyes peeled!
The race is on with this exciting version of the classic hidden word puzzle – it turns a solitary activity into a fun group word game as players go on a word search. Rotate the specially-designed circular board to reveal the word that the players will race to find on this turn. Everyone plays at once, and the first player to locate the word marks it with transparent colored tiles. With twists and turns that allow players to remove tiles played by competitors, Wordsearchers find that it’s a great game for kids and families to play together (and to boggle their minds!). The player with the most tiles on the board at the end wins. The game includes 464 words to search for in 16 different puzzles and is good for years of fun.
