Part of the Wines That Rock series, Pink Floyd wine comes from Mendocino County.
It is a custom Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the winemaker, Mark Beaman.
Mark is from the Mendocino Wine Company.
The wine label is the cover of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon album with the album title in a small circle on the wine label.
The winemaker set out to capture the essence of the music of that album and he was successful in doing so. The music from that album is dark and complex and so is Pink Floyd wine.
Pink Floyd Wine Dark Side of the Moon Review
In the glass, the color of Pink Floyd wine is very deep and dark. The legs easily suspended on the side of the glass with plenty of hang time. I also noticed bubble sheet suspension, similar to some Oregon Pinots I’ve reviewed previously.
I found the aroma to be earthy and fruit forward with sub-tones of black cherry and damp hemlock forest. Definitely enjoyable and it gave a nod to the complexity this wine holds.
The taste was of cherry and black raspberry. Slightly on the dry side, but not a show stopper. The flavors were well balanced, smooth and round. You could tell the Pink Floyd wine was a blend and that was OK by me.
The finish was smooth and silky with noticeable but well behaved tannins that I sensed more on my tongue than on the sides of my mouth.
Overall, Pink Floyd wine is very enjoyable. Honestly, when I saw it in the store I thought it might be a gimmick. However, when I saw that it was on the top of Amazon’s wine list, I decided to give it a try. I think you should too. Great wine, unique labeling and would make a great gift or conversation starter at a party. Recommend!
