Somehow I hoped this would unknit how sewn into Beaujolais I am. Nope. I’m knotted up with these wines as ever and damn I’m claustrophobic but these s-wine-ters (aka wine sweaters can we make this a thing) have room to breath. All of which to say is this has a happy friendliness of a buddy you spend every weekend with. It is complex (fruits! acid! honeysuckle blossomfun!) and has a sense of dry wit (acid cutting, bone dry stone, sullen but no it’s just serious texture) to cut through anyone’s pretense. But it feels welcoming and warm. And full. And will let you lay your head on its bosom OR maybe it is just a sophisticated warm knit to keep that bosom both warm and savvy. All the same it has acid, ripe fruit and warming fruit to make it a winter-tastic cold rosé I’ll keep trying every year

We had to rescue my daughters car in Iowa City today...so this provided an opportunity to snag a bottle of this at John's Grocery! It was a beautiful day..although I am not sitting on the deck...January provided us with the highest snowfall on record (30 inches). Wednesday morning when I went to work it was -53 ° windchill...so 44° today was like a nice summer day! Perspective can be amazingly hilarious!

Seamless texture, with everything you want: minerality, fruit, acid, herbs.

Tasty rose’ out of Beaujolais. Restrained nose of floral and herbal components. The mouth is medium bodied where flavors of strawberry and subtle melon mingle with fennel and asparagus. The gamay isn’t noticeable but that is not a knock.

High toned raspberry and cranberry. Really bracing. Perfect for a hot afternoon.
