Oak Fermented; Ribera Del Duero - Spain $19

98 SEA SALT
2018 Dry Rose
New Zealand $14
For some reason this producer/importer doesn’t want to put “Frizzante” on the label of this wine (or their Sauvignon Blanc), which is too bad (not to mention misleading) because this wine is an absolutely wonderful drink! It has everything you’d want in a dry rose with the added delight of a light sparkle. This wine has both white (pear, red apple, lemon/lime and grapefruit) and red (strawberry and raspberry) fruit flavors that dance on your palate all the way through the long, long lingering finish.

DOC - Italy $17
On the nose, peach, raspberry jam, cherry and strawberry mingle with floral notes and light chalk dust. The palate delivers the same flavors in a nicely balanced wine ending in a tight, acidic finish. It’s easy to down a whole bottle without thinking of it. (tasted 2/1/17)

2016 Dry Rose of Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley $15
(tasted 4/4/17)

90 JOLIE FOLLE
2017 Rose
IGP Mediterranee - France $16
The aromas are very nice – red apple, lot of citrus, green strawberry and hints of Bing cherry. On the palate this wine borders on the too tart side, but delivers enough fruit and floral notes to keep it balanced through the long finish. This would be a great food wine as the tart acidity would pair well with fatty foods. (tasted 12/28/18)
