Subjected to only the most particular of soil and climate conditions, harvested and filtered to discerning specifications, and stored exclusively in 40% new French Oak barrels. Fender® wines are produced with the same attentiveness and consistency as each of our historic instruments. Grown on hillsides throughout the Sonoma region of California, this 2012 vintage produced a collection of ripe, juicy wines that speak to the level of quality, prestige and character for which Fender instruments are known. Like our classic guitars and the sonic formulas from which they're born, each of these distinguished wines affirms that some things truly get better with age.
As distinct as it is timeless, no guitar is as finely suited to the label of this bold-tasting 2012 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon than the celebrated Fender Stratocaster® guitar. The world’s most popular guitar has always been revered for its recognizable contour and sparkling, focused tone. This elegant 2012 vintage was created in that same vein, with a classic combination of bright, concentrated flavors, substantial body and a bold presence that’s as commanding as the legendary instrument gracing the bottle.
Since 1951, the Telecaster® guitar has persevered as a premier touchstone of Fender history and quality. We’ve commemorated the proud legacy of this iconic instrument with this 2012 Sonoma County Pinot Noir and a recipe that is equally rich. With its robust aromatic bouquet, eminently classic flavors and a smooth sophisticated finish that resonates on the palate, this mature Russian River Valley wine is a fitting salute to Fender’s first solid-body electric guitar—time-tested, multidimensional and remarkably unchanged.
Favored for its recognizable character and remarkable balance, the Fender Jazzmaster® guitar proves a fine choice for the label of this 2012 Sonoma County Chardonnay. With a crisp, firm backbone and perfect symmetry of acidity and sugars, this aromatic Carneros Region wine emerges as a prime example of structure and mellow, lingering undertones. And like the iconoclastic instrument on the label, this chardonnay’s complex blend of texture and flavor distinguish it as a standby choice of both the conventional wine drinker and the adventurous enthusiast.
The shimmer and twang of the traditional solid-body Telecaster® guitar resonate as core components of the rock ‘n’ roll sound. Similarly, the pronounced flavors of this Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel—a juicy blend of dark plum jam, pomegranate, cranberries and candied cherries—stand out with the same sense of vigor and personality. The diligent aging process and broad, long finish of this versatile wine serve as testaments to a recipe that, like that of the Telecaster® guitar, is exquisite in quality, simplicity and timelessness.
