It's the end of the summer as far as the school year is concerned, but it's always summer in Miami...and sometimes we ladies need to make a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of our busy summer schedules and regroup, relax and refocus. I don't know about you guys, but my girlfriends and I like to have little weekend getaways every other month or so to do this. Our lives are so much more productive when we take even just a day or two away from our regularly scheduled crazy lives, soak up the sunshine and sip a nice glass of JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay while doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Why JaM Cellars? Well, duh, they're an award winning wine brand! They've won a Gold medal, SF Chronicle Wine Competition Jan. 2017 and named “Impact Hot Brand” for 2016!
While we don't always have a special occasion for taking our girl's weekend getaways, this past rendezvous was an exception: we were celebrating my friend Angie's birthday, and my other two friends Colleen and Claudia are police officers for the school board and were ready for a relaxing weekend before the back to school season. Me? I am always ready for a weekend trip to the beach...or anywhere for that matter!
The Butter Chardonnay is rich, bold and luscious. Made in the tradition of quality Californian winemaking, the grapes selected by JaM Cellars are juicy, ripe and bursting with flavor, and they cold ferment their Chardonnay to a lush creaminess and age it in a unique blend of oak. Butter brims with stone fruit and baked-lemon notes and has a lovely, long, vanilla finish. As JaM Cellars says, Simply put, it melts in your mouth!
JaM Cellars makes three easy-to-love, everyday California wines Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. The second-generation Napa Valley vintners John and Michele are the “J” and the “M” in JaM Cellars. Isn't that so cute? I love when a brand really gets behind their product and personalizes it! They made these wines in a style they love to enjoy anywhere and everywhere and at under $20 a bottle, you can do just that, whether it's a special occasion, everyday celebration, or like our very own birthday getaway weekend!
The JaM Cabernet is just perfect for evenings at home, whether sipping with friends or just lounging around catching up on a good book. It's berry-licious, luscious, just one sip and you'll experience firsthand why they say "This Cab is my JaM!:
It tastes of blackberries, black plums, black currant, cassis and more, it really is all about the fruit. JaM harvests at perfect ripeness and make this JaM Cab in the tradition of great Californian winemaking, just bursting with lush berries on the nose and palate. Aging in their unique blend of new oak smoothes the wine and adds a lingering touch of vanilla to the finish. YUM!
JaM was even so kind as to send me a few plastic wine glasses, which were awesome because the hotel allowed us to use them at the pool - you know pool rules, no glass allowed!
JaM Cellars has a great article, Summer, SLOW DOWN!, full of ideas on how to make the most of the rest of your summer...one of those ideas was to hit the beach...we never made it to the beach, which was just across the street, because we were too busy relaxing. Ha!
