Fall Creek Vineyards Grenache Rosé 2020, Texas

Happy National Rosé day!

Very light salmon in color, almost see-through.

Pretty strong fruity nose with yellow apples, peaches, citrus and spices.

Medium plus in body, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, green apples, grapefruits, spices and white pepper.

Tangy finish with limes.

This is a really nice Rosé from Texas. Easy drinking and nicely balanced, with a nice mouthfeel.

A great wine to have all by itself or by the pool. Not bitter, which I really liked.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

100% Grenache grapes are grown on clay and limestone soils.

13% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$30.

A. Rafanelli

Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Just a good wine. Grandfather collected Rafanelli from the mid 90’s till Mississippi cracked down on shipping wine to the state in 2010. Brought a couple bottles back for him from Texas. While I attribute the 1998 Terrace Select Cab as the wine that really got me into wine, I overall still lean towards their Zin’s. — a year ago

@David L Their merlot is the one wine in their lineup that I have failed to try... the past year has been eye opening for me with regards to Cali Merlot. Before I just assumed for the most part they are just all big fruit bombs, but man I have never been more wrong. So many good options right now. Working on building up a little collection. Cheers!

@David L thanks for the recs! I’ve been keeping my eye out for some Buccella’s at auction. Hope to snag a few bottles soon.

Acorn

Alegría Vineyards Rosato Rosé Blend 2018

This is delish. Just add Texas heat creeping in and this makes for another perfect Spring/Summer patio chill wine. (I am developing a quarantine theme...). Raspberries, red cherries, and maybe some granny apples. Refreshing Rosato for the red wine lovers. Plus I just love Acorn - a great value/quality buy. If ever in Sonoma, stop by and visit Betty and Bill to hear all about their wines and their passion. — a year ago

Peter Michael Winery

'La Carrière' Knights Valley Chardonnay 2012

Thank goodness for excellent Peter Michael chards! It is bloody hot and humid in Texas this week and the thought of a heavy red is unappealing but a great nuanced, non oaked, structured Chardonnay hits the spot! All smiles! — a year ago

Last week in Texas. Hosted a final dinner for close friends. Been a great 8 years! This was sublime. So cool tasting Pax’s transition from big wines like this (14.5% abv) to what he’s doing now. Damn I love Pax — a year ago

Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Lovely Sauvignon Blanc that was part of a welcome gift for my wife & I during our recent staycation at the brand new Westin hotel here in our very own Texas Medical Center. Perfect wine to sip on while watching the sun go down from the terrace. — a year ago
