Playboy Collectors Edition Wines

The 2008 Playboy Collectors Edition Wines takes the showcase vintage from unique garagista and cult wineries worldwide, paired with vintage Playboy Magazine Covers hand selected by the wine makers and transformed into a limited edition run of 500 bottles. Each label showcases the year and month of the centerfold that wine makers feel best personifies that particular vintage style.

The inaugural vintage begins with 2005 Janzen Napa Cabernet Sauvingnon, produced by Nils and Kirk Venge, with the February 1962 centerfold. This 2005 vintage has produced outstanding results in it's fitness and depth. Possessing aromas of dark cherry with hints of cedar, cassis, raspberry, plum, black current and vanilla. This Cabernet clearly defines the perfect combination of fruits and tannins inter-winded with hints of oak, and a balanced structure and finish, just like Playboy's February 1962 cover.

Wineries participating in this unique and exciting collection include Gargiulo Money Road Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Supery's famed Dollarhide Cabernet Sauvignon, Shug Estate Heritage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, a South African Villafonte Series S, an Italian Tenuta Sette Ponte Oreno, and many other high end limited production, highly sought after wines. The Playboy Collectors Edition WInes wines will be available by subscription only at www.personalwine.com.
