Kathryn Rhoads D’Argenzio, sister of late Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads, will be honoring her brother’s legacy be releasing a commemorative-edition Randy Rhoads wine.
Kathryn says: “In tribute to my brother Randy Rhoads, I would like to dedicate this special limited release Cabernet Sauvignon in honor of his legacy memory and my devoted love.”
The Randy Rhoads special edition 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon will be available on August 15, 2010. It is limited to two bottles per customer. For more information, go to this location.
The then-lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, Rhoads and two others were killed in 1982 when their small plane struck Osbourne’s tour bus and crashed.
If this was just another winery looking to cash in on a rock icon, we’d be a little put off by it. But since D’argenzio a) runs the winery and b) was related to Rhoads, it’s a nice tribute. It’d be kinda cool to have a wine-off to see which is the better wine, the Rhoads or Maynard James Keenan’s Merkin Vineyards. Anyone wanna send us a bottle of each?
