It’s a great grape for rose. Grenache gets too little attention on its own as it’s typically in a blend. But here this Abacela Rose shines. Cherry. Strawberry. Tart and crisp. Lip smacking. Dry. It’s wonderful chilled on a hot day and equally delicious as it warms to room temperature. The QPR is amazing for the substance of this wine. Ranges $15-20 bottle. And keep some for Fall and Winter too. Rose isn’t just for sunny summers. Goes with a myriad of foods all year long (think turkey at Thanksgiving or ham at Christmas). It goes Especially well with all grilled things. Barbecue season here we come! — 2 days ago
A nice blend of 40 percent Cab Franc and 60 percent Merlot from multiple vintages. Smooth Tannins. Worth a trip to hard to find winery near Jacksonville OR. May 2021. — a month ago
I bought this thinking it was the Cuvée, and instead it was the Barrel Select.

Pale straw w/greenish hue - expressive nose of sweet citrus & honeydew melon + some tropical fruit. Quite the SB nose, silky suave mouthfeel and a beautiful harmony of fruit, texture & acidity. Not Alsatian style - I’d say very New World and impressive. — 5 days ago
Imagine biting into the freshest ripest most beautiful Granny Smith apple.. that’s the fruit on this wine. Add some flinty minerality, little bit of lemon zest and wham a baseball bat worths of acidity. Gorgeous pinot Gris. Bravo Foris. — a month ago

Color of light purple with a bit grey tone. Quite clear. Nose of beautiful dried strawberry, aldehyde, roasted pepper, a bit prune, a bit spice, and under the current strength of alcohol. Taste is refreshing, with hint of Coca-Cola, minty, memory of fresh berries, slightly sweet, clean and flavorful. Aftertaste shows some more zest and hint of tannins, drizzled with fresh green grapes. Medium long. Nicely done. — 7 days ago
