Powered by Mom shares a Chateau La Paws Wine Review – A wine with a cause!
It’s no secret that I like the occasional glass of red wine and I prefer to buy ones that won’t put a big dent in my wallet. Well imagine my delight when I was approached to review Chateau La Paws wine. Not only are their wines reasonably priced at a suggested retail price of $12.99 but more importantly they support no-kill animal shelters.
About Chateau La Paws
Life is better with best friends. That’s why we back up our belief with action. We proudly support No Kill Organizations around the country and our labels feature adorable shelter dogs to draw attention to this great cause. It’s simple: keep dogs cared for and happy until they become members of their new families.
At Chateau La Paws™ we are crazy about two things: our dogs who inspire us every day, and our delicious wines which do the same!
The dogs pictured on their wine labels are real shelter dogs
In 2015 Chateau La Paws™ & Diageo Chateau & Estates are donating $100,000 to North Shore Animal League America to help fund the great work that they do to rescue, nurture, and adopt as many dogs as possible. Now that’s a company I can stand behind. Simply by purchasing a product I already buy I can help animal rescue organizations even more. Chateau La Paws has won me over with their cause alone but I bet you’re wondering did I actually like the wine?
Well I received the Pinot Noir and their Red Blend. I tried the Pinot Noir first as Pinots are one of my favorites in addition to a Petite Sirah. now keep in mind I’m not a wine connoisseur. I just know what I like when I taste it and I’m happy to say I loved the Pinot Noir. I did have to let it breathe a bit and I admit I was unsure after the first sip. However, after a couple of sips it was clear that my palate and I liked the Chateau La Paws Pinot Noir.
Here’s how it’s described on their site:
Our Pinot Noir shows the rich, velvety profile and big, bold character of its distinguished pedigree. Expressive varietal character delivers Bing cherry, strawberry and blackberry briar aromas with long, heady accents of vanilla and caramel. Dark fruit leaps off the entry, followed by coconut and crème caramel. “Sit back and enjoy a glass,” recommends Winemaker Marty Spate. “It’s a tribute to the simple joys in life – good dogs and great wines.”
Now I did not find it strong or overpowering and the fruitiness is ever so subtle. I’d be surprised if you tasted it and thought oh it so fruity tasting. It was just enjoyable and not strong is the best way I can describe it with the flavors being subtle and blending together nicely.
The Red Blend I just tried recently. It too was quite nice but had a bit of a spicy flavor to it compared to the Pinot Noir. I liked both but the Pinot Noir is my favorite which is no surprise as I said I tend to favor a Pinot most of the time for most wine labels.
Here’s how they describe their Red Blend
There are some things that just make life better – namely dogs, with wine being a close second. Our Chateau La Paws Red Blend celebrates this with a medium-bodied red wine that is as satisfying and enjoyable as our four-legged friends. Like a mixed-breed dog, our Red Blend combines several varietals together to offer complex, multi-dimensional wine with affable character. Blueberry, raspberry and black forest cake aromas open the nose, followed by dark berries and sage on the palate. Soft and velvety in texture, the wine has a fruit-driven profile that pairs well with a variety of foods.
From my limited experience with wine I’d say that’s a far better description than what I could give and accurate. If you’d like to responsibly enjoy a glass of wine and help homeless dogs find happy homes then consider going with Chateau La Paws when purchasing your wine. Check out their site, contact them to find out where you can get their wine near you. They are a wine company with a cause that I support.
