My guess is that this label was named by Nicolas Jay partner Jay Boberg, who has a pedigree in the music industry as noted online by David Jenison of PRØHBTD. "As co-founder of I.R.S. Records in 1979, Jay Boberg worked with such label signees as R.E.M., The Cramps, Oingo Boingo, The Go-Go's, English Beat and The Buzzcocks, among many others. In the 1990s, he became President of MCA Records working with such platinum-selling acts as The Roots, Sublime, Mary J. Blige and Blink-182." - Blurb from PRØHBTD
Red Vinyl is the entry-level wine from Nicolas Jay, and is an excellent offering at this price level, and drinking well now.
From Vinous: "Bright red. Vibrant raspberry and cherry scents, accompanied by suggestions of allspice, candied rose and white pepper. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering lively red berry and cola flavors that slowly deepen on the back half. Finishes sweet and quite long, featuring resonating red berry character, gentle tannins and a hint of spicecake."
