9.2

Wheeler Farms was designed and built after Bart & Daphne Araujo sold Araujo to Chateau Latour. They spared no expense building their facilities and make 11 other labels there, including TOR.

This 17 Rosé is their first vintage and is a red blend.

Soft beautiful fruits, lean, watermelon, cherries, raspberries strawberries, peach, light beautiful minerality & spring flowers and pink roses. Beautiful acidity & finish. Nicely done.

Photos of, the small bites prepared for our tasting, their awesome gardens and their reception and tasting room.

@David T Thanks for this information following my recent Araujo Eisele note. Did not realise they had sold to Ch Latour.

Domaine Chandon

California Rosé Blend

A wonderful great value sparkler. Contains 68% Chardonnay, 12% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunière. Light golden straw with complex aromas of stone fruits and spice. Lively bubbles on light mousse, medium bodied, apple and pear on the palate, lemon citrus with vanilla notes on nice acidity, well balanced ending with toasty mineral notes. Nice. — 17 days ago

William Chris Vineyards

Pétillant Naturel Rosé Blend 2017

The William Chris pet nat is a blend of six grapes, all from either the high plains of Texas or from the Central Texas Hill country (where I live). A unique mix of merlot, Mourvèdre, and Malbec make up 75% of the blend. It is the color of pink lemonade with aromas of wheated raspberry, blood orange, and grapefruit. Balanced flavors of yeast, strawberry, celery, and Asian pear come together very nicely with light bitter citrus fruits on the finish.

You wouldn’t call this funky natural nor traditional old world pet nat. It’s a wine of no template or category - wild like the Texas frontier.

Villa Maria

Private Bin Hawkes Bay Rosé Blend 2017

This wine is nearly neon, the salmon pink-orange is so deep and rich. Its nose smells of strawberries and an overlay of herbal notes. It's not quite like Provence, but it's close. The dry palate is gorgeous, full of that bushel basket of strawberries and an earthy quality on top. The acidity is rather gentle so sipping it is recommended. However, it will pair nicely with salads and snacks. — 15 days ago

Clos Marfisi

Rosé d'une Nuit Patrimonio Rosé Blend 2017

Truly fuckin’ outstanding, although a bit mystifying. I am stumped by it, which Clos Marfisi’s Cuvée Julie also achieved. It smells like clean air by a lake, like the sound of stones clattering as waves undulate on the shore. It’s mineral-driven, with almost no discernible fruit, and it’s one of the most exceptional wines I’ve tasted. Drink 👏 this 👏 now! 👏 — 6 days ago

Domaine Maby

La Forcadière Tavel Rosé 2017

9.1

I never expected a bottle costing ~$20.00 CAD to be this good. This approachable Southern Rhône Grenache punches well above its price. Presenting plum and blackberry aromas this full body yet spry blend excites a zesty turn on the palate with its crisply dry concentrate of blackberry and currant flavors. Long in finish with hints of lavender and chalk this wine will please. 14% alc/vol — 14 days ago

It’s been two weeks and I missed my juice on an extended weekend tasting in Napa last weekend. Today, after a long Friday, it’s still worth the wait.

Can’t get enough of those beautiful lean fruits and sharpe powdery chalky goodness!

Domaine du Gros' Noré

Bandol Rosé Mourvedre Blend 2017

David T
9.1

On the nose; lightly perfume pink roses, spring wild flowers, lean fruits with a slight gummy bear character, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine, cherries, candied red apple, orange citruses, beautiful chalkiness, strong volcanic minerals and sea spray.

The body is full, round, thick and a touch gluey. Lean fruits with a slight gummy bear character, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine, cherries, candied red apple, orange citruses, beautiful chalkiness, volcanic minerals and sea spray with lightly perfume pink roses, spring wild flowers. The acidity is round and full. The finish is well polished...thick, gluey and waxy. It’s elegant and very easy to drink. The only thing that I struggle with this wine is the minerality is a bit heavy for my tastes. It’s gritty minerals dig deep into the palate on the long finish. But, I still appreciate it as it’s a good contrast to other Bandol Rosés. Like, Tempier and Chateau Pibarnon Bandol etc..
