Jarhead Red


 

Wine lovers and troops supporters…this one’s for you.
My dad Miles, is a Colonel in the Marine Corps, therefore I am constantly supporting anything related to our troops, specifically the Marine Corps. When I was talking to my dad the other day, he suggested I look into a new wine called, Jarhead Red, made by a Marine. Not only is the wine delicious, but a portion of the proceeds go to the Marine Corps Scholarship fund, an organization that offers educational assistance for the children of fallen Marines.
And @ less than $15 a bottle… We should all drink a little, in honor of our troops, of course!
Here’s their bio:
JARHEAD RED is made by Marines for Marines… It is a tasty blend of Cabernet and Merlot made by Firestone Vineyards own Adam Firestone,

a former Marine Corp Captain.

Jarhead Red is a robust, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged in French oak barrels for eight months. It offers flavors of plum, cassis and black currant with fine tannins on the finish. Jarhead Red is available in 750ml (the Rifleman) and 1.5L (the Sergeant). Occasional availability on larger formats including 3.0L (the Sergeant Major) and 5.0L (the Commandant).

The Jarhead Red Story

Jarhead Red was conceived in 1999 as a celebratory bottling for the annual Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation Birthday Ball in Los Angeles. Since the founding of the Marine Corps on November 10, 1775, at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, Marines have gathered on this date and toasted their comrades present and absent, and the future of the USMC. Over the years, the wine gained a following by word of mouth and was enjoyed at Birthday Balls around the country. To meet this growing demand, the wine was released for distribution, with net proceeds benefiting the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.
