2021 Grandma Lila’s Rose
Our dry Rose of Sangiovese is named after Erin’s Grandmother Lila, who swore that pink wine was “the good stuff” and insisted you save it for her. She clearly knew what she was talking about! A touch of raspberry on the nose with bright strawberry and dazzling white peach on the palate. This rose is perfect for your backyard BBQ’s, sunny days on the patio, or any evening surrounded by good company.
The 2020 Jaine Rosé was crafted exclusively from Thunderstone Vineyard, within the Royal Slope AVA. The vineyard is fully sustainable and uses organic farming methods whenever possible. The vines were hand-harvested early in the evening of October 6th, 2020. The wine is a blend of 94% Grenache and 6% Mourvèdre, fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel to maximize aromatic potential. The wine has perfumed aromatics of dehydrated strawberries, rose water, and watermelon rind. Swirling adds spring flowers, crystallized peaches, fresh herbs, and chalk. A polished wine with lifted acidity.
2021 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Rose. Beautiful, brilliant light pink color, with a forward-sweet aroma, a mix of flowers, tropical fruit, and red berries.
The flavors show a refreshing bright acidity with grapefruit, kiwi, passion fruit, ripe strawberries, and watermelon. The mouthfeel is sweet, bright and juicy, with rich texture and a long and bright, red-fruited finish.
Quid.di.ty Wines released its 2021 RISIBILITY (Rose of Mourvedre) in April.
This is a beautiful rose wine and has been quite popular with everyone who has tried it (except for my mother, not gonna lie). It is a dry rose with medium acid and a nose of white and black pepper, violet, and lots of strawberries. RISIBILITY has flavors of strawberries in balsamic vinegar, cherries, cherry-cola, and a slight finish of sweet tobacco and black tea. For me, this wine is the best of both worlds. All the liveliness, crispness, and freshness of a white wine with all of the complexity and funky edginess of Mourvedre.
RISIBILITY; “the ability or disposition to laugh; humorous awareness of the ridiculous and absurd” is a great thing and essential to a well lived life because, as John Prine used to sing, “It’s a big old goofy world.” Why not treat yourself? Pour a glass of rose and listen to a favorite song that you haven’t heard in a while.
RISIBILITY is 100% Mourvedre sourced from the Elephant Mountain Vineyard within Washington’s Rattlesnake Hills AVA.
