Zinfandel 2006 Available For Private Label

I recently received a sample of 2006 California Zinfandel from a Napa winery friend of mine.  The wine is youthful and dense, with dusty tannins on the palate and a focused core of cranberry spice and bright acidity.

Hyatt Hotels Create Private Label Wines under the Canvas label

Canvas: Hyatt Hotels Private Label Wine | Business Travel Logue

Canvas: Hyatt Hotels Private Label Wine

Hyatt Hotels has further distinguished itself as one of the cream of the crop in the hotel industry by launching its new signature wine brand, Canvas. Canvas was developed in partnership with Folio Fine Wine Partners, a Napa Valley based company owned by the Michael Mondavi family. The hotel will offer handcrafted, artisan varietals of Carbernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. I will only drink one of those.

According to the press release, “Rob Mondavi, president of winegrowing at Folio Fine Wine Partners and Michael’s son, worked closely with Hyatt and acclaimed Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson Immer to develop the Canvas wines.”

The new Canvas varietals will be available at restaurants, bars and in-room dining at all Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency and Hyatt Resorts in the United States. Hyatt Place and Hyatt Summerfield Suites properties will begin serving Canvas wines later this year.

The new varietals include:

* Cabernet Sauvignon – The 2004 vintage offers lush aromas of ripe, fruit-forward flavors of black cherry, blackberry and cassis layered with nuances of cigar box and tobacco. Soft supple tannins and toasty oak showcase the silky finish. Subtle hints of oak and spice, married with lively tannins, allow this wine to be enjoyed on its own or with a pairing.

* Chardonnay – The 2005 vintage greets the nose with lovely apple blossom and honeysuckle aromatics. The wine then transitions into a pure varietal of rich orchard fruit flavors dominated by apple and pear, framed with well integrated oak and bright acidity.

* Merlot – Crafted as a wine to be enjoyed on its own or paired with a favorite dish, the 2005 vintage is a wonderful balance of pure Merlot fruit and subtle toasty spice combined with rich, ripe tannins that give this wine elegance in the glass.

Cabernet and yummy gingery bath products make Hyatt one of my very favorites.

Convivium Brands Private Label Wine Tender

We have had a great response to our last newsletter to suppliers.  In the newsletter was a tender for private label wines from France, Germany, Spain, Australia, Argentina and Chile.  We have received some great pricing from some wineries that we have done business with or visited in the past, as well as some new wineries.

One of the questions that parcipants are asking us is, how do we guarantee that the restaurants, stores or other clients will continue to order private label wines after the initial purchase?
