If you’re on the prowl for some feel-good seasonal sips, the just-launched Prowling Vineyards Napa Valley is here for it with its premiere spring release. The official wine club of the Carolina Panthers (!), the membership-only Prowling Vineyards Napa Valley’s handcrafted varietals mirror the Panthers’ boldness and toast their hunger to win both on and off the field—at football and at life—with iconic flavors that honor the Carolinas and allow fans to play a part in supporting Panther charities. Nocturnal types looking for a grape time are gonna wanna sip on the Night Hunter. The flagship classic Napa Valley cab enthralls with notes of black cherry, blackberry and plum, complemented by toasted oak, dried currant and baking spice for a bright and polished mouthfeel and long finish. For a fruitier feel, sidle up to Panthera, a velvety, elegant Santa Barbara pinot noir that pleases the palate with bright strawberry flavors and a nose of blackberries, raspberries, cherries, brown sugar and baking spices. White wine fans will go wild for the alluring and complex elegant blend that is the Cat Tail. Perf for Caturday—or any day—the bright and zingy Napa Valley cuvée blanc’s citrusy floral nose pounces from the glass like a bouquet to the face before a lemon-forward burst on the tongue, finished with pineapple, tropical fruits and vanilla undertones for a subtle spice. Three and six bottle ops are now available for members to score twice a year—with bonus benefits to boot (think: Panthers fire-branded crate, entry to Panthers-only events, access to additional bottles of vino year-round and more). So, in essence, uncorking one more way to Keep Pounding. prowlingvineyards.com
