A rousing game of backyard backgammon Accessorizing a linen pantsuit Speeding up a spicy poolside flirtation The most ridiculously decadent seafood tower you’ve ever seen
A crystalline & eye-opening rosé of Syrah, as energizing & fresh as the first swim of summertime. A blush of pink grapefruit is brightened by a charming sprinkle of Syrah’s trademark pepper spice. As absurdly easy-drinking as Little Monster can be, this rosé has definitely got some muscle to it— think medium body, luscious texture, & a broad, epic palate of strawberries & cream. The dinner party guest of all our dreams, Little Monster can hang with every dish at the barbecue just as effortlessly as it pairs with an endless conversation & late-night laughs.

THE STORY BEHIND THE WINE
LITTLE MONSTER - VOL III
The move was sudden, my home was perfect. The ride over was filled with interesting vistas that flew by too quickly. “Almost there baby,” mama assured. Up we went quickly, but I trusted her.
The doors opened, and I immediately ran towards a hiding spot. I’m not an expert, but this was no bunker. His voice was new, and he sat by the bed faithfully. I wondered if now was a good time to test his mettle.
A sweet meow and a kiss, I could tell he was mine. I played coy, but it was a game. He had no idea, obviously smitten. I could get used to this. Big windows, dumb birds and my own butler.
“Well done Monster. From the dumpster to the top… not too shabby.” Grandma was right, I was just getting started.
