Train guitarist releases pinot noir

Train_Press1.JPGMost people think of "Drops of Jupiter" when they think of Grammy Award-winning band Train. But winos might add a "Red" to that thought, as in "Drops of Jupiter Red" - one of guitarist Jimmy Stafford's wines with the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company.

Stafford, in a collaboration with winemaker James Foster, has just released the company's fifth varietal "Soul Sister," a pinot noir. The medium ruby wine is sourced in the Central Coast, with "flavors of ripe cherries and strawberries, a hint of vanilla and a smooth finish."

Train has been known to host intimate wine tastings backstage with friends and industry folk. If you think you somehow have an in with Train, see about joining after Saturday's show at Sleep Train Amphitheatre.

The company's wines all run for $12. Order a bottle online here. Or hunt down "Calling All Angels Chardonnay," "Hella Fine Merlot," "California 37 Cabernet Sauvignon" and Petite Syrah-based "Drops of Jupiter Red" at Total Wine & More on Arden Way in Sacramento or one of the Sprouts Farmers Market outposts in Citrus Heights, Roseville and Elk Grove.
