Meiomi Wines are making their way to Frank Liquor! Meiomi offers three different wines that are sure to please!
Meiomi Pinot Noir - "A rich garnet color with a ruby edge, the wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. Expressive boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate. The well-integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom seen in Pinot Noir."
Meiomi Chardonnay - "Smooth, opulent layers of pineapple and lemon peel are heightened by sweet smells of honey, almonds, baking spices, and subtle custard notes. The full flavors are highlighted by succulent acidity and a clean, mineral-driven finish.
Meiomi Rose - "Delicately pink in color, Meiomi Rose is delightfully dry with vibrant acidity. The wine opens to delicate aromas of strawberry, rose petal and citrus. The palate offers mouthwatering flavors of juicy strawberry, watermelon, hay and grapefruit with a cool minerality on the finish."

Stoli Lime is smooth and balanced, with an aroma of freshly squeezed limes. The first citrus-flavored vodka to be introduced by Stoli in more than a decade, Stoli Lime aims to conquer the challenges that bartenders and consumers face when making cocktails – the sour and over-powering flavor from bottled lime juices and the short shelf life of fresh juices and limes. A bold and juicy flavor with distinct notes of freshly pressed lime and a smooth fruity finish, perfect in a refreshing Moscow Mule or Vojito (vodka mojito)
Ménage à Trois Luscious exposes the darker side of Pinot Noir. Soft and approachable, it seduces you with its sultry fragrance, voluptuous flavors and devastatingly smooth finish.

There are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. Its rich traditions – sipping a mint julep, donning a beautiful hat, and joining fellow race fans in singing “My Old Kentucky Home” – transcend the Kentucky Derby from just a sporting event, making it a celebration of southern culture and a true icon of Americana. Churchill Downs, the world's most legendary racetrack, has conducted thoroughbred racing and presented the Kentucky Derby continuously since 1875.
The Kentucky Derby is the longest running sporting event in the United States. The race has continuously produced “the most exciting two minutes in sports”; uninterrupted, even when coinciding with profound historical events like The Great Depression and World Wars I & II. The race spans over the course of three centuries and boasts some of the most memorable events in sporting history.
Watch the 142nd Kentucky Derby on May 7th, 3pm-6pm CST (5:34 race time) on NBC
14 Hands 2013 Limited Release Kentucky Derby® Red Blend
The inspiration for 14 Hands wines recalls a time when wild mustangs once freely roamed the hills of eastern Washington State. These small horses, measuring a scant fourteen hands high – a “hand” being equivalent to a man’s palm width, approximately four inches – would travel down from the hills every day to drink from the Columbia River and graze along the riverbank and then retreat back to the hills at night. This unique and beautiful landscape gave these unbridled horses their spirit and tenacity that now feeds the vines.
14 Hands crafted this limited release Red Blend to commemorate their proud sponsorship of the Kentucky Derby, and the 142nd race taking place in 2016. The image of the front label features the winner of the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby, and the 2015 ‘Triple Crown’ winner, American Pharoah. This red blend showcases juicy Washington fruit character with aromas of blackberries and plums with subtle hints of chocolate and pepper. Flavors of dark berries and cocoa, supported by plush tannins, give way to a long-lasting, persistent finish.
Share this complex wine with friends at your Kentucky Derby viewing party paired with party favorites like pizza and grilled burgers!
The Mint Julep
The Mint Julep has been the traditional beverage of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby for nearly a century. Each year, almost 120,000 Mint Juleps are served over the two-day period of Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby weekend at Churchill Downs Racetrack. That’s a feat that requires more than 10,000 bottles of Mint Julep Ready-to-Serve Cocktail, 1,000 pounds of freshly harvested mint and 60,000 pounds of ice.
This cocktail is as much a part of Southern culture as hospitality. With pronounced sugar and mint notes, the Mint Julep goes exceedingly well with long summer days, horses, pretty hats and good company.
Here are recommended Bourbons to create your own Mint Julep cocktail: Maker’s Mark, Bulleit Bourbon, Knob Creek, J Henry, and Elijah Craig Small Batch
