All 2013 rose' wines 20% off Friday, Feb. 27 - Saturday, Feb. 28 are 20% off. Multiple bottles will be open for you to sample during the course of each day. Oregon, Washington, French and Italian wines will be opened and offered for sale before the 2014 rose' wines REALLY start rolling in!
Besides the rain that rolled in today has put a wee damper on the early onset of rose wine drinking, but it'll be short lived and perfect pink wines are on call for this weekend!
From Washington, Gilbert Cellars, 100% Mourvedre ($15) that drinks not at like it is from our good neighbors up north; dry and crisp with a mineral back bone. From my good pal, Chris Berg up inMcMinneville and his winery Roots , Washington's Scorched Earth AVA, Grenache rose' ($18). Brigadoon, Willamette Valley Rose of Pinot Noir ($18.50), Patton Valley Vineyard, Pinot Noir Rose ($19) and speaking of delish Willamette Valley wines there's my wine making buddy, Joe's Wright, from Left Coast Cellars, Rose of Pinot Noir ($20) . If you are looking for something a bit more foreign there is the all-to-easy-to-drink Gris de Gris from Domaine St. Nabor (Grenache Gris, Grenache Noir, Carignan, Cinsault and Mourvèdre,) which for $10 is like boom-boom out go the lights! Another Frenchy dynamo Gris-de-gris ($17)is Domaine de Fontsaine's Corbieres. Also French but oh so out of this world is Domaine Tempier's Bandol Rose ($43). From the Bieler Pere et Fils of the Cote D'Aix-En-Provence ($10) is yet another wine so easy to get to know that it is ridiculous! In getting ready for some Italian tastings, in March, we have the Rosa del Rosa from Proprieta Sperino ($18) as well as the Langhe Rosato ($14) from Corsini. And, while the only vintage that is available, is the 2013, During Saturday we will be tasting a vertical of 2011, 2012 and 2013 Chateau de Trinquevedel, Taval!! Normally this $20 is a mind-twister and to try a vertical and to get a discount on the 2013 is pure madness! Rose' madness!!
Remember that the prices in the ($) are regular. Friday and Saturday Feb. 27th and 28th all non-2014 rose wines are a blow-out 20% off! Limited to stock hand.
