'Fifty Shades of Grey' author selling awkward wine
E.L. James, writer of the erotic romance novel "Fifty Shades of Grey," is following the success of her New York Times best-selling novel and forthcoming film with a red and white wine collection, reports ABC News.
The red is described as a blend of "Petite Sirah and Syrah with flavors of black cherry, cocoa powder, creamy caramel and vanilla, leather and clove spice," according to a news release. Meanwhile, the white is a "Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc" combination with "floral aromatics of lychee and honey, tempered by flavors of crisp grapefruit, mineral and lush pear with a faint hint of butterscotch."
Wine fits perfectly with "Fifty Shades" theme; the alcoholic beverage seemingly plays an important role in the plot. Shocking!
The wine is currently sold on FiftyShadesWine.com but will be available beginning Monday, Sept. 30, at Albertsons, Wine.com and other retailers nationally for $17.99.
