Summertime and Summer Wine

It's summertime, and the living We're our way to the middle of July, and many of us are experiencing some pretty intense heat waves. What can you do to stay cool besides sitting in front of the AC, jumping in any nearby body of water, or just sweating 24/7? You could pop a few bottles of wine cool enough to battle the summer heat. We've gathered notes from the Delectable community to help you find the bottle to match your chosen way to stay cool. From poolside sippers to beach beverages, we have it all. Cheers and stay cool!

Reserve Luján de Cuyo Malbec 2020

Yup, score is definitely influenced by the view. That aside this classic Argentine Malbec is perfect for pizza dinner. Bold, acidic, tannic and slightly fruity. — a year ago

Camp 4 Vineyard Vermentino 2021

The Ojai Vineyard - Camp 4 Vineyard - Santa Barbara County - Vermentino - 2021

Superb Santa Barbara County Fruit, Fruit is round and expertly ripe. Those in the know, know Camp 4 Vineyard.

Santa Barbara Terroir on the nose. Sight is greenish yellow. Medium+-Full body. Acidity is medium, keeping things early summer quenchable and drinkable without being bracing, and retaining the fun summer fruitiness without being bonkers. Flavor profile has a bit of grass, hay, and white peach notes. Delicious. Multi-bottle purchase. Highly recommend making a reservation for tasting if planning a trip to Ojai.

So far, for the limited amount of Vermentino in CA, and the ones I have been lucky enough to come across, This is my favorite still wine Vermentino (yes, theres sparkling out there too)

Napa Valley Rosé Blend 2021

This wine has notes of a saline sea breeze on the nose. Crazy as it seems maybe even like a salt marsh. Maybe a little tart cherry there as well. Very pleasant and refreshing. This is a very pleasing, elegant style rose. Enjoyed on the back patio on a summer Sunday evening. — a year ago
