Carlos Santana releases limited edition wine for a good cause

Enjoying a glass of wine while listening to sultry classic tunes “Samba Pa Ti” or “Europa” is one thing, but enjoying a glass of wine named after Carlos Santana himself just takes the experience to a whole ‘nother level.

The iconic Mexican guitarist revealed Tuesday that there’s a new, limited edition wine called “Santana Savor” –inspired by his music and with unique fruit flavors found only in the vineyards of Napa, Calif.

The official statement was published on Santana’s Facebook, which read: “From Team Santana: Introducing Santana Savor from Mumm Napa, a limited release. Inspired by the music of Santana, this luscious wine holds the fresh fruit and decadent flavors that can only be found in the renowned vineyards of Napa. The Mumm Napa winemaking team has crafted this spectacular wine along with Carlos Santana by capturing beautiful notes of ripe peaches, creamy vanilla, red and white berry notes to create the perfect sparkling wine to delight the palate and celebrate any occasion, large or small.”

This only makes me want to stop writing this piece and get myself a glass (or two, or three…) of “Santana Savor.” A 750ml bottle costs $25 and all proceeds will go to support The Milagro Foundation, established by Mr. Santana and his family in 1998.
