Scott Harvey, known in Napa Valley and Amador County as a “master blender”, has been using his winemaking skills for both a red and white blend of One Last Kiss, since 2005. Every year since inception, he has produced about 500 cases of each blend. However the company was recently caught by surprise by the sudden upswing in demand for their newest vintage of One Last Kiss.
“One Last Kiss has always been a steady favorite, and we can usually plan for sales”, said Jana Harvey, co-owner and Scott’s wife. “But our Tasting Room staff keeps selling out – and we didn’t know why until the knowing smiles among our Tasting Room visitors caused us to dig a little deeper.”
“Haven’t you heard of the singer P!nk’s hit (Blow Me) One Last Kiss?,” exclaimed one young woman who was out with friends for an afternoon of wine tasting. As it turns out, One Last Kiss is fast becoming a favorite for overcoming a recent break-up, new-found independence, or as a gift for the friend who is newly single. Fortunately, this year’s prolific harvest makes it possible for Scott to create more of this blend to meet demand.
One Last kiss: both a Red and a White Blend
The style for my 2009 One Last Kiss Red is a lush Zinfandel blend, accentuating one of California’s best varieties,” said Scott Harvey. “A touch of port fills out the wine, making it well-balanced and complete, with a rich and lingering finish.” Made in a full-bodied style, One Last Kiss Red Blend is full of spicy cloves and blackberry fruit. It goes well with all kinds of dishes including Mexican or Italian food, and according to our new Millennial fans — chocolate.
About One Last Kiss White Blend, Scott continued, “I’ve always loved producing Alsatian style blends. The Symphony grape brings a fruit forward beginning to the wine, while the Chardonnay and Riesling make up the full-bodied finish.”
This blend offers tropical notes of kiwi, jasmine and passion fruit, adding a hint of citrus to create a flavorful wine with good balance and mouth-watering acidity. It is complemented by light style pastas, fish or chicken.
