Rosé Blend

Wölffer Estate

Summer in a Bottle Long Island Rosé Blend 2017

This is a very nice Rose. Has a great steely nose and palate of strawberry and cream. Soft rose, with good structure. Very acidic from start to finish. This one will go much better with food, but it wasn't really enjoyed with a lot of fare. Can definitely see how this bottle would go well with cheeses and cheese/meat charcuterie board. Has a lot of life left. — a day ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2018

I cannot get enough word play. Especially as it pertains to wine, French Stuff, and outer space. Although I’d like Uranus jokes over UFO ones. That joke wrote itself only because I also adore alliteration. Ahem. Anyway this homage to Chateauneuf de Pape’s refusal to allow UFOs in its terroir (I don’t let them in mine either, honestly) is ever so transparent in what is in it, ever so zing pow wow, but shhhhhh chillout sweet babygirl that I am now a Bonny Doon convert. I wish I could say I was more than a half glass in writing this but you can blame to wordplay/slight tawdry-ness/silliness on...me. And the following tasting notes don’t do anything to actually explain this wine. Less than the prior paragraph anyway. But know it is more than the sum of its parts. But! If you want tech:
Appearance: pale pink. Nose of red fruits of all types, Whole Foods bulk section and a new fountain perhaps in a cheeky avant- garde art garden. Tongue: dry, medium acid, medium alcohol (whoops it’s 13.5!) body is silky and neatly suede-y. You’ll taste bright underripe strawberries, overripe raspberries, maybe an iris or so and something mineral and also green let’s call it pussywillows just to keep me thematically on track. Finish is medium plus with a hint of candied fruit punch.

Quite possibly the finest descriptor I have ever heard for wine. Bulk food section! Tops the previous “freshly opened tennis ball can” which I believe was either @David L or @Shawn R

My first time trying the CH rosé champagne. Their Brut is my favorite NV champagne, so I was glad to finally get my hands on some of this. Not surprisingly, I loved it. Similar to the Brut, certainly a battle between fruit and savory yeasty notes, but more strawberry skin and rhubarb pie adding some spice to it. It’s got that streak down the middle showing the older vintage wines they add to these (which I love) adding a bit of English biscuit and caramel. — 5 days ago

Brut Rosé Blend

Bubbly left over from New Years; a great night to indulge as I’ve got time to drink some. Salmon pink with pinpoint bubbles. Yeasty nose with a hint of fresh floral shop scent. Crisp, mild cherry and red fruit flavor, slight malic aftertaste with a cherry pulp, cherry cough drop flavor. Nothing to dislike here, great value. — 19 days ago

Paso Robles Rosé Blend 2017

While I’m a sucker for rose’ I rarely rate them this high. This is a different animal. I’d say it’s more of a “with food” rose’ than a “lounging by the pool” rose’. Ample weight and a full mouthfeel, strawberry/rhubarb pie filling, bold and savory with a dollop of all-spice. I enjoyed this immensely and it made great strides as it warmed up. I’d serve at 65+ degrees. Shout out to @Connor McMahon and @Rebecca McMahon for loving what they do and making it show in our glass. Cheers. — 15 days ago

@Bill Bender oh my favorite rosés are not usually the light summer supper types—I’m a Tavel and Cerasuolo style girl—which is likely why I was extra critical. This is definitely my style rosé but like your suggestion to have something to chomp on with it. That can never hurt😊
