Ahhh…Rosé wine – that often overlooked section in your supermarket or wine shop. Fellow Texans: “Hear ye, hear ye”; go forth and get a bottle of 2008 McPherson Cellars Rosé while it is still 100 degrees outside. This is the Woody Allen of wines – and I mean that as a huge compliment: dry and witty, yet lighthearted; it will keep you coming back for more. It is complex enough to make you ponder life, relationships, and loneliness. But when you peel back all the layers of the plot, it is simply just a love story. Visually, it is deep red like a bowl of fresh cherries or even Hibiscus tea. Strawberries and hints of cranberry on the palate from the Grenache (16%) with enough tannin and boldness from the Syrah (84%), this is a great food wine. And if you’re looking for a value…come on now – this wine is the real deal!
“Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage.”
Woody Allen, ‘Without Feathers’
