The straw is super for being flirty but I prefer a straight up sip. Either way strawberries, ripe, juicy, prospering in the sun attack you and wet stones someone gave a light butter or cream coating back it up. Those stones are where the berries heated. Were I to personify...this is the friend you didn’t see for six years and you get together and you are on edge, there’s a delicate are-we-still-a-match tension but then you are happy and connected and it’s chill and was-it-six-years? thoughts waft through your happy berry-infused brain. — 2 days ago
Absolutely killer #provencal #rose for the price. Pale salmon color, citrus and unripe strawberry on the nose. Let this one warm up a touch in the glass and an excellent balance of acidity, fruit and some herbs start coming out. Delicious paired with grilled salmon and new potatoes for lunch. #wsjwineclub — a day ago
Outstanding Okanagan rosé. Pale salmon colour. Delicate nose reflects terroir with a bit of funk on top of white peach, strawberry, melon. Bright palate with similar notes. Finishes strong with good acidity. Paired with pesto glazed, grilled salmon and yellow summer squash. — 7 days ago
A vibrant jewel tone pink, super dry, high acid, medium body with a juicy nose of red berries, red licorice, and white flowers that transition beautifully into flavours of strawberries, melon and mineral finish. An excellent Italian rosé made from Nebbiolo, Crotina, and Vespolina grapes ! Delicious. — 12 days ago
On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our conductors are David Newman and John Williams are leading a diverse program of cinematic works composed by John Williams entitled "Across The Stars: Music Of John Williams". We'll enjoy pieces from Star Wars (various episodes), Harry Potter, E.T., Memoirs of a Geisha and many others. All works to feature the violin virtuoso, Anne-Sophie Mutter, a personal favorite soloist of ours on these hallowed grounds. Mr. Williams has rearranged many of the selections today to better feature Ms. Mutter, an exciting afternoon will lay ahead. 🎼🎻
Nose has mashed strawberry/banana and cut red delicious apple.
Palate has sweet strawberry, banana peel, ripe red currant and light green herb notes.
The wine is 100% DeChaunac, a more common varietal for colder climates, like Ontario; fruit is sourced locally (FLX region) from Sheldrake Point.
The 2018 may just be the finest version of this wine to date, so juicy and expressive on the palate, just beautiful for this warm afternoon. — 13 days ago
