E 40 Adds Wine Label To His Portfolio (PHOTOS)

Bay Area rapper and father E 40 has launched a limited edition red and white collection of wines called the Earl Stevens Selections, available online.

40, known for downing 40 of malt liquor like water, named the collection after himself.

Moscato-Selection“I wanted to create my own wine because I’m a huge wine connoisseur,” said 40 in a press release. “I love wine and I got a name for myself so I decided to make my own.”

The spirits, which comes in three flavors, are produced in northern California from high quality ingredients. The “Mangoscato” flavor blends mango, citrus and apple flavors and has a kick since it’s 18% alcohol.  The “Function Red Blend” is a mix of Cabernet and Zinfandel and touts aromas of raspberry and plum as well as spice, oak and vanilla. The Moscato flavor boasts the aromas of honeysuckle, gardenia, orange blossom, white cherry, apple, pear and peach along with a smooth finish.

E-40 will drop another triple album, The Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil 4, 5, 6 on December 10. Earl Stevens Selections are available online at www.earlstevensselections.com.

This is not Earl Stevens’ first foray into the beverage world. He’s endorsed and was part owner of a cognac called Landy and also had 40 Water, his brightly hued take on Vitamin Water. He released a song early in his career about Carlo Rossi Wine (erroneously called “Carlos Rossi”) and later joined up with the Saturday Night Live-reared band The Lonely Island to record a song about Carlos Santana’s wine called “Santana DVX.”
