Such a beautiful and nuanced Rose — gorgeous, highly polished notes of wild strawberry, fennel, pink rose petal, white tea, just roasted pine nut, and delicate essence of gardenia.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.

  1. Good to see you reviewing a rose’. I absolutely love rose’. A couple of years ago I was visiting a local winery and the owner suggested I try one of their new wines. When he held up his rose’, I felt the dread come over me. What if I didn’t like it, what if I offended him. I just knew it was going to taste like a white zinfandel – BUT, it was tart strawberry with perfect tannins and made your mouth water. I have been on a rose’ quest ever since! I will look for the Stepping Stone!
