5-12-14 Word On Wine 2 American Rosés

This week we reviewed two new world Rosés  both were using Rhone blends but the results were quite different.

1)Charles and Charles Rosé.  Washington State.  $13.  The cepage was predominantly Syrah though it also contained some Grenache and some Mouvedre.  The results were a little too fruity for our tastes but once the rose was left in the fridge for a day…it dried out and was nice!

2)2013 Tablas Creek Patelin Rosé.  $14.  This was primarily a Grenache blend which also had the other typical complimentary Rhone grapes.  This was very nicely made and also benefited from some time with the air!  I guess the point is Rosé season is here and it’s always great to try some.

Check out our show!  I think you will enjoy.
