Soda fountain suicide - this is that. RedWhitePink is a suicide of six grapes - Pinot Gris, Mondeuse, Viognier, Blaufrankisch, Ribolla, Gruner. Reds treated like red, whites like white, then blended. It’d be “illegal” in Europe, hence the wine’s nickname. It’s kind of a mind trip but any singular reference point would probably lead you to Tavel.
Glowing magenta. Sour cherry lozenge, bitter blood orange, mild woodsy notes and grippy tannins.
And of course, Dr. Pepper at the end. — 2 days ago
Nose has dried raspberry, fresh raspberry, orange peel, watermelon rind, (light) savory green herbs and (light) candle wax.
Palate has dried strawberry, dried orange zest, red currant juice, rose petals and dry soil.
It's always a treat to drink rosé away from current release, the flavors change slightly and the acidity generally mellows; This is how we really enjoy them, just need patience.
2016 Blend: 49% Grenache, 19% Grenache Blanc, 13% Mourvedre, 12% Carignane, 4% Cinsault & 3% Rousanne.
24 Hour Update: Palate has picked up an awesome, and zingy, ripe strawberry note, like really good! — 4 days ago
Certainly different than The Pontiff. This was lighter and more classically Rosé whereas in a blinder glass I’m not sure I would identify The Pontiff as a Rosé at all. For my taste, this was enjoyable, but not mind-blowing (which is usually the case for me with wines from SQN). — 6 days ago
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time back at home with a glass of one of our very favorite N/V Champagnes. Ahhh!
Out of the deluge of rain with the house warm, Christmas lights and my custom Christmas mix (5 hour mix of old & new) on.
Happy Holiday Season all! Cheers! 🍾🥂 🌲 🎅 🎁 ❄️ ⛄️

Pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone fruits with nutty mineral tones and a fine mousse. On the palate apple and apricot flavors with mineral and biscuit characteristics, bone dry and structured well. Full body, lively acidity on a medium length ending with crisp citrus and yeasty mineral notes. — a day ago
Long day cleaning & painting getting our rental property getting it ready for our new tenant. We are burnt but, a glass of Ruinart Rosé always perks us up.
We’ll be doing this a lot over the next two weeks. Hope everyone has better weekend plans than we do! Cheers!🥂
All my previous notes apply.
