Four of Black Willow Winery wines continued their winning streak this year at the 2015 Critics Challenge International Wine Competition, the 2015 Los Angeles International Wine Competition and Beverage World's sixth annual BevStar Awards.
Trilogy Red earned a silver award at the BevStar Awards held in early May.
The Los Angeles International Wine Competition was held May 13-14. Bare Cat Blush, a semi-sweet blush with aromas of berry and honeysuckle, won a gold medal with 90 points. Odin's Nectar, traditional honey mead, was awarded a silver medal, while Trilogy Red rounded out this event's winners with a bronze.
The Critics Challenge International Wine Competition, held May 23-24 in San Diego, was chaired by Mary Ewing-Mulligan (the first woman to earn certification as a master of wine), and Robert Whitley (writer of the syndicated Wine Talk column for Creators Syndicate). Bringing home the gold at this event was Classic Diamond, which was awarded 90 Points. Classic Diamond is a light-bodied sweet white wine with a floral aroma. Taking home the silver medal and 88 points was Trilogy Red, a dry red blend. Elegant with light tannins, this wine has a rich berry character that melds into a symphony of flavors.
