Am I the only one who gets hives when one uses the word "sip" in association with wine?

Why?

Had this at a BYOB sushi place in Jersey. Thought it was pretty good, especially once it opened up a bit.

Might've been predisposed to like it because I found this via a Google search:

reports?

 

Well, I was shocked at how different the two VT's were - the first was really earthy and all the fruit was completely gone, while the second had just a hint left and it made all the difference in the world. But the standout for me was the wonderful and amazing de Fargues - it scintillated! The nose was so full of aldehydes (I can sense where the '01 gets its plastic-y nose from), and well, I really didn't take notes, but for a while, despite the pressures of many family members around, I just sat there and enjoyed the wine. It was so, so fabulous!

I almost bought a rose last weekend, but I was cold and wearing flannel and regained my senses.
post #16044 of 18177
last weekend I bought two cases but didn't open any because it was too damned rainy and cold.

It was truly miserable until Sunday.

Seriously, last weekend was gross. It was big red and whiskey weather, not rose.

This weekend is pizza, beer, and packing the apartment for a move for me unfortunately. I do plan on stocking up on rose once moved though.

Any favorite quaffing roses?

Ah, not until next spring. We are just moving in the neighborhood (Carroll Gardens) next weekend. Landlord is selling our current building.

this is not going to help, but Chateau Turnque-something imported from Kermit Lynch. $16-17, and delicious.

I'd expect nothing less from KL. Will keep my eyes open.

I seem to recall Chamber St sending an email recently with a bunch of roses they were recommending. Will have to look for that.
