The spectacularly viscous, savory, herbal Provencial rose’s are a big favorite but for most of the best ones, you spend a lot more for subtle, though not insignificant improvements.
Clos Cibonne seems to be a well known exception. You get the extra joie de vivre sans the premium. It’s one of the few wines I buy with cadence. Heavy on orange and rose hips and follows with the herbs we love - rosemary, fennel, thyme, some tropical notes filling the gaps. — 2 years ago
Dark reddish purple. Inviting nose and medium-bodied palate of red berries, pomegranate, and a hint of toasted nuts on the moderate finish. Medium tannins. Medium acidity. A most typical example of mid-range Washington. The midpoint between New World fruit (but dark fruit) and Old World structure makes for an excellent American food wine. Pair with anything from burgers to roots to prime rib. Just do so by 2027. — 3 months ago
Ben’s wines are just the best. They age beautifully, case in point that his first vintage is tasty so well right now. Really good with spicy meat. Lovely. — 2 years ago
