So for me, especially with the hot days we’ve been having, I am gravitating to rose, and my wine pick today is from the Cotes de Provence, the largest appellation in Provence, of course known for rose. Almost with 90% of its production is pink and a bright pale pink, known to be fresh, a hint of spice and floral notes.

 

 

 

Listen to my wine review on the radio show at 4:21 minutes in the show.

My choice is the Sables d’Azur Cotes de Provence 2015, rose, by Gassier, beautiful, salmon copper colour, fresh, crisp, dry, beautiful tones of fresh strawberry and peach, elegant, delicate, a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and syrah, lovely, delicious, all for $15.95 yum!

 

 

 

 

 

So this week I went with a red wine today too. My pick is from Paso Robles, situated on California’s Central coast and actually Georgia and I visited this winery a couple of years ago, we headed down the coast after shooting our show in Napa Valley.

So J, for Jerry Lohr, has been around since 1974, a hugely successful brand, one of America’s most known wineries, they have two wine centers now, one in San Jose and of course the one we visited. J Lohr is actually one of the few family owned estate-focused wineries of this size.

To the vino, you know me pretty well, how often do I gravitate to Merlot? Not that often right? So this time I did and I was super happy about the J Lohr Osos Merlot 2013 $21.95 I cracked open when I got home!

So this Merlot actually has a substantial dose of Malbec in it, no shrinking violet this wine, bright, seductive aroma of plum and blueberry, full juicy dark fruit flavour and a lengthy finish. PLUS 2013, they are saying is was an extremely strong vintage for Paso Robles!
