While a longer month than last–it seemed to go so much more quickly. One comforting constant is wine! Here are my reviews both written and video reviews for the month of March.
I am in full spring mode and keep thinking Rosé and sparkling wines. I look forward to tasting more in April and hopefully better weather to come.
I’d like to know your thoughts on these wines if you have tasted any of them.
Ferraton Côtes du Rhône Samorëns Rosé 2018
This wine is 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah & 20% Cinsault. Nicely dry and yet appreciable rosé with the right amount of fruit to savory tones. Nose: appreciable wild strawberry, lime zest, delicate floral notation, and fennel; palate of mountain strawberry, hint of pepper and Thyme, and flowers. A stellar value at $14 SRP
