A Rose for Winter?

I know this is not the season for rose. I actually have to confess that I took a bottle of this wine home last November, planning to have it as part of my Thanksgiving Day and just never got around to it. Last weekend I was poking around in my stash for a bottle to have with lunch and it just seemed to point itself out to me. It's possibly the best rose ever! Well maybe that's a little much but it's certainly a serious and delightfully unpretentious wine. Actually the label on the back says, "Red Wine, Produce of Spain" but I'd have to call it a rose. A big-boned rose with weight and a center that says "you could just quaff me but please pay attention as I have something to say." It's floral in a rosebud, geranium way with herbs in the background, very honest. We've had it in stock since October and really believed it was a great turkey day wine, I still have no doubt, but it sells at $19.99 and that's a little more than most people usually fork over for rose so we still have some. The wine is drinking great and deserves attention. A rose for winter? Why not?



"La vida en Rosa" Rioja 2008 from Olivier Riviere. Kudos to the folks at Louis/Dressner for bringing this to the States.

  1. Valentine’s Day is a special day for every lover. Also known as Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, it is a traditional holiday honoring St Valentine or Valentinus, a Roman priest. The saint was martyred about AD 269 and buried on the Via Flaminia. So Valentine’s Day is celebrated as a tribute to him on February 14 each year. Lovers all over exchange gifts on this day. But Valentine’s Day is not just for the romantic partner; you can also give Valentine’s Day gifts to your sister, mother, father, daughter or son as a show of love. But of course, these will be general gifts and not romantic ones. Let us take a look at the history of Valentine’s Day and the Valentine Week.
