Bodkin Wines is named after a type of arrowhead used with great success by peasant bowmen of England against the armored nobility of France during the Hundred Years’ War. The project comes from Chris Christensen – one of the most respected and influential Black winemakers in America (he’s also behind the Where’s Linus? wines), who is also a self-dubbed huge medieval history nerd. Chris founded Bodkin Wines in 2011, where he sources organic and sustainably grown grapes from vineyards across Northern California to produce his wines. The Eyren Muscat, named after the concrete eggs the wine ages in, is medium bodied and aromatic, full of citrus fruit and honeysuckle. The palate is bright and slightly creamy, with a hint of minerality and a clean finish. Pairs well with fish curry or not-too-sweet almond cake.
