9-2-13 Word On Wine Review 2 From Marie!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week Mary reviews two wines that she tried this Summer that I am looking forward to trying.   One is a rose from California and the other a red blend from the Languedoc.  (The Wild Southwest of France!)

1)2012 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Rose.  $20.  This was a California rose made in the Province style with three French varietals.  The cepage was 70% Grenache, 20% Mouvedre and 5% Counoise.   We both like Tablas Creek as they have a nice combination of old and new world approaches to wine making.  This rose had a very pale color and a bit of oak which added some nice structure.

2)2011 Domaine D’Aupilhac.  Languedoc.   $15.  (30% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 20% Syrah, 10% Alicante Bouschet and 10% Aramon)  That is quite a cepage!  Nice structure with great Rhone varietals and a good SW French punch!  Both of these are great for this time of year!

Check out the show!
