Checking in on this one tonight. Nose is more steely-strawberry right now. The palate is the surprise today, it's mellowed from the typical lime-like acidity. I'm not sure if I like it better now or when it was more youthful. The fruit and mineral notes seem more nuanced. I still advise everyone, this is probably the best QPR in rosé, period.

Basque region. Light, spritzy and low alcohol. Think bone dry strawberry-lime soda with an alkaseltzer thrown in.

Tasty rosé at the best tapas place in all of Durham, NC... Even though I've been scoring at 9.0 for 2017, the food pairings with the wine earn an extra point tonight.

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion into the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Prior notes still apply.

This is absolutely one of the best Rosés for the money. With good Rosés now hovering around $40, this producer is one of the top producers in Basque Country. While others have dramatically increased their Rosés prices, Ameztoi has inched their prices year to year. Rosés have gotten so popular and their prices have skyrocketed relatively high in the last five years. So much so, I just read an article about fake Roses being produced in and exported out of France. I selected this Rosé for Hedy’s Strawberry Gazpacho, Tarragon, Basil, Olive Oil. It married the bright fruits nicely, strawberry. The Rosé has just a bit of fizz from the carbonic tank process. The minerality & hint of herbs made for a even tug of war with the Tarragon & Basil. @Plate&Bottle on FB. Check out Hedy’s past dinners.

A one week check in since our last bottle, hoping for improvement?

We got up to 66°F in the Berkshires today, so time for rosé by the chimenea. Our snow pile wine chiller is massively diminished, likely this to be its last weekend.

It's sunny and just over 30°F today, so fire in the chimnea time! First flames of 2019. Nose is more steely then prior bottles with Cherry-Lime-Strawberry today. Palate is more mineral biased today as well, perhaps the ambient temperature is restrained or changing it slightly, Strawberry-Lime is still dominant. A good bottle, still a few left in the cellar, looking forward to the 2018 version. I still hold that 2017 was good, but not as good as 2016. We have one bottle of 2016 left and I'll do a three vintage comparison sometime in May when the new vintages generally land on the East Coast. I still advise everyone, this is probably the best QPR in rosé, period.

Minerals packed with orange peel and salty sea breeze. Citrusy, melony, and refreshingly fizzy.
