Credibility is what it’s all about, and when all else fails, what do you do? You put out your own wine label. Such is the case with 1980s iconic hair rock band, Whitesnake. Fronted by throaty David Coverdale, the band always seemed to lack that music cred even with chart-topping hits like “Here I Go Again” (remember the Tawny Kitaen videos?). Mind you the News to Chew editorial staff are big Whitesnake fans, never passing up the chance to crank up the FM radio when “Fool for Your Loving” surfaces. Yeah, the ’80s were great.
Anyway, now the band (yes, it is still around) hits the shelves not with a new album but with a more refined product, a 2008 Whitesnake zinfandel corked by the Dennis de la Montanya vineyard in the Russian River area of California. And how is it? Well, at $30 a pop, it ain’t no Two-Buck Chuck. Or as the esteemed Mr. Coverdale says:
“It’s a bodacious, cheeky little wine, filled to the brim with the spicy essence of sexy, slippery Snakeyness … I recommend it to complement any & all grown up friskiness & hot tub jollies …
Is this love? … I believe it is …”
Cheeky monkey he is, isn’t he? I’d say Whitesnake has finally arrived.
Just some news to chew on.
