Family and friends toasted guitar legend Randy Rhoads on Sunday during a release party for a Cabernet Sauvignon that bears his name.
Rhoads was the lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot before he was killed in a plane crash while on tour with Osbourne in 1982.
The D'Argenzio Winery created the 2005 vintage at the full production facility in Santa Rosa, and the wine is being exclusively sold there and at the family's tasting room in Burbank.
Kathy Rhoads D'Argenzio, who is married to Richard D'Argenzio, has been trying to come up with a way to honor her brother. Her husband's twin brother Raymond D'Argenzio runs the winery. Together the families decided to name a wine in Randy Rhoads' honor and release the vintage on his sister's birthday.
Guests strolled between the two tasting rooms pausing to watch family photos flash on a flat-screen TV while color posters of the guitarist playing in concert were displayed on the walls.
