The below is a post I wrote for LXV Wine at blog.lxvwine.com about an event they were having.

It is the shadowy desire that crosses your mind in the deep, open possibilities of a long night, and in the rejuvenation of a new morning…the strength of your convictions and the frivolity of your indulgences..the coaxing you give in to when no one is looking…
your Secret Craving.

The Secret Is Out
Our Secret Craving? It’s a deep, ruby-colored wine…a mellow yet dramatic performance starring three distinct beauties: Cab Fanc, Syrah and Merlot.
Plucked from the rich soil of Paso Robles, the grapes that wrote the script for this unique ensemble deliver an engaging deep fruit and blueberry performance. Subtly sweet and gracefully bold, this hush-hush concoction speaks of its passions through flavors of cassis, leather and spice.
Sip it, pair it, chill it, air it…and each time, it will provide you with an experience more unique than the last. It’s the very evidence of intrique and the very magic of science, all at once.
The First Rendezvous
On a breezy, sunny Sunday this past weekend, Secret Craving was poured at a secret tasting on LXV winery property in Paso Robles, greeted by the eyes, noses and palates of a select few “suitors” who could not wait to meet LXV’s (and winemaker Amy Butler’s) latest work of winemaking art.

Surrounded by barn wood, vines, crystal chandeliers, homemade international cuisine and superb company, lucky wine-lovers basked in the glow of this chic rural hideaway as it created the perfect balance between a simple backdrop and a complex, agile wine.
Experience the Magic
If you can’t bear to leave this Secret Craving unsatiated a moment longer, we invite you to a mysteriously riveting and whimsically indulgent tasting this Saturday, May 24, 7-9:30PM at the rustically elegant LXV property.
On-location at LXV, world-renowned LA magician David Minkin will conjure an exclusive, private magic show for an intimate group of spectators, to their delight and amazement.
The magical gathering will include:
– Wine tasting (meet your Secret Craving)
– Indian epicurean delights (aka, outstanding food)
– A private magic show
– Mysticism, ambience and intrigue
