A pale pink rose pedal meets lavender experience. A few years old produced an effervescence on the finish, which was medium acidity and light in body.

Pale peach in color. Muted aromas of peach and orange peel. Nice fruit and acidity on the palate accompanied by stony minerality. Made from a combination of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Counoise from the Windmill vineyard in the Dunnigan Hills of Yolo County, Syrah from the Hurley Vineyard in Napa Valley, and Grenache from the Gibson Ranch in the McDowell Valley of Mendocino County. Whole cluster pressed then fermented and aged on the lees in stainless steel without malolactic fermentation. Very quaffable at only 11.2%. $24.

The Matthiasson was another standout this week as was spending time with my youngest daughter. Very low alcohol but subtle punch. White peach and wild strawberry. So smooth and fresh it almost glides over your taste buds.

I know I’m supposed to like this more than I do. Crisp, refreshing, just not terribly complex.

Phenomal. Light French like personality with really good acid balance. Paired with Hatch green chile cheeseburgers.

This never disappoints. Wonderful dry finish after summer fruits dance on your tongue.

Wildflower and berry on the nose. Light and dry on the palate. Very nice.

Figured since I had the other M last night, I should open a @matthiassonwine rosé tonight. A bit spritzy... But still tasty.
