Rosé Blend

Domaine de la Mordorée

La Dame Rousse Tavel Rosé Blend 2018

Another blockbuster Tavel from Morderée. The 2018 is as delicious as it gets and this is tasting better in 2020 than it did on arrival last year. I’d always attributed the unique zesty and pungent flavors in this wine with the tiny amounts of uniquely Tavel blending grapes... perhaps that remains true, but this wine is mostly Grenache 60%, with Cinsault/Syrah/Mourvèdre at 10% each, and Clairette/Bourboulenc at 5% each. Whatever the blend, they’ve nailed this one. Sadly, it’s quite pricey at over $30. Now if I could locate some LaFond in my area, we could crown a Tavel champion, but this one will be hard to beat. — 5 days ago

Domaine Les Capriades

Pet' Sec Rosé Blend 2018

Pure strawberries with a touch of raspberry fruit and raspberry leaves. Like a strawberry granita with mint. Zippy acid with a hint of herbal/bitter tannins on the finish. Pure pure fruit with a mineral core. Amazingly clean for a pet nat. Medium-coarse bubbles. Very enjoyable and refreshing. — 3 days ago

Lovely Springtime wine. 🌸Will have to look for this if I ever go to Costco again. Haven't been there since February.

Renato Motalli

Alpi Retiche Rosato 2015

Copper-peach color in our glasses.

Nose has day old orange peel, fresh lemon zest, flaked sea salt and wilted daffodils.

Palate has juiced strawberry and Clementine orange, partially dried cherry, green table grape skin and a lightly chalky finish.

Really singing after about 90m open.

Proof positive that you can't predetermine the quality of a wine by the quality of its label.

The Renato labels leave a bit to the imagination...the juice is solid stuff though

Chamery 1er Cru Brut C. de Rosé Blend

Wow, at a loss for words here. This has tapped into a pleasure circuit in my brain. Joyful red currant, tart rapberries, caramel, flakey pie crust and lasting acidity. At the core, the most incredible mineral structure. Liquid rocks. Stunning. — 6 days ago

@Severn Goodwin Stunning! Unfortunately, the bottle didn’t last very long.

Les Lunes Wine

California Astral Blend 2019

A mix of red, white, and orange, Les Lunes fits no category. Call it pale red or pigmented rose’ or slightly oxidized white - it’s all of these. I get Zin dominant aromas of jammed raspberries and cedar. Flavors of strawberry Pinot and tart cranberries. Drink with a medium chill — 10 days ago

Whetstone Ciderworks

Terra Alta Rosé Blend 2019

This is about as good as it gets for a Rose. It’s not the cheapest, but I’ve drank a few of these already and it’s hard to keep it in the bottle. Amazingly good on a warm day. So refreshing. The finish is unlike most other roses in the market - smooth and not acidic. @Whetstone Wine Cellars great stuff! — 11 days ago

Prohibido Wines

California Rosé Blend 2017

This is a nice and enjoyable Rosé from California. In the glass it is showing Peach in color with an orange hue.

Dry on the palate with cherries sweet strawberries Citrus lemons apples pears and spices.

Spicy finish with black pepper.

I've had it a year ago and this 3 year old is drinking nicer now. Crisp and refreshing.

I had it for lunch by the lake under the trees. I pair it grilled chicken grilled chicken skewers on a Greek salad.

The Seasonal Grand Opening of the D&S Lounge. That’s going to require some BSR to celebrate.

As well, going to detail notes of this with my new Riedel Vintage Sommelier flutes, center picture. I’ve been wanting to write notes on this Champange in the new flutes as I wanted to do it one I am very well acquainted. As
@Paul T- Huntington Beach & @Severn Goodwin have pointed out the many times I have posted it.

The nose is definitely more vibrant. Tangerines lead where they haven’t in my previous notes now using the new flutes. More pink rose petals, blood orange, pink grapefruit, leaner; strawberries, watermelon, warmed, creamed raspberries, apricots & cherries, liqueured marmalade, hints of scorched rhubarb, lemon/lime aid, chalky powder, delicate, grey volcanics, sweet, sea spray, bread dough, baguette crust, touch of brown sugar/molasses light, haunting, dry herbs, limestone and bouquet of; white, red, pink & orange roses.

The body is round with some gummy or gluiness. Everything about the mouthfeel is more delicate and softer. The bubbles smaller & more refined. Pink rose petals, blood orange, pink grapefruit, leaner; strawberries, watermelon, warmed, creamed raspberries, apricots & cherries, liqueured marmalade, hints of scorched rhubarb, almost a date presence on the long set, chalky powder, delicate, grey volcanics, sweet, sea spray, lighter intensity of white spices but, still has the heat & palate penetration, bread dough, baguette crust, touch of brown sugar/molasses light, haunting, dry herbs, limestone and bouquet of; white, red, pink & orange roses. The acidity is all fresh & lively with this cuvée. But, even that seems better. The finish is as always; well knitted & balanced, polished, fresh, persistent and never disappoints.

Photos of; the best room in our house for 6+ months of the year, our backyard. Aka, the D&S Lounge on Memorial Day Weekend 2020.
