Summer is in full swing, and nothing says summer like a good rosé. Not all rosés are created equal… this type of wine has a rich, new history and is making huge strides in its production and evolving varietals. For all of July AND August, we’re devoting our Marrow Magnum Mondays to the celebrated pink drink: rosé. July is for rosé selections from the USA, while August is for Provençal selections of rosé.
On July 1st, our selection is Matthiasson Rosé, from North Coast, California. We are kicking off our 2 month run of some of the season's best rosé with a staff favorite from our friends, Steve & Jill Matthiasson. Year after year, this wine shows what an exciting place Northern California is for beautifully balanced and delicate rosé. A glass of this citrusy and refreshing wine is a great complement to any of seasonal vegetable dishes and of course, bone marrow!
On July 8th, we’re featuring Wolffer Estate “Summer in a Bottle”, from Long Island, NY. Come check out the limited edition packaging on Wolffer's 5th vintage release of this rosé. This wine hails from Long Island and packs tons of lush, elegant berry fruit followed by a zesty, fresh finish. A glass of this wine may even transport you to the Hamptons for a day...
On July 15th, our selection is Gramercy Cellars “Olsen Vineyard”, from Columbia Valley, Washington. This single vineyard rosé from Gramercy Cellars hails from the Pacific Northwest of the US. It is complex, intentionally-made wine with layers of fruit flavor from pink grapefruit to cantaloupe to strawberry to watermelon, all capped off with pretty floral notes and smoky minerality.
On July 22nd, we’ll be pouring “Red Car Rosé”, from Sonoma Coast, California. This rosé is lively, delicious and will wake up a tired palate. It is made from all Pinot Noir grapes from cool climate vineyards right along the Pacific Ocean. Red Car rosé is appealing from start to finish with its gorgeous aromatics of lychee, passionfruit, tangerine, rose petals and racy acidity.
On July 29th, we’re finishing off this month of rosé with Division-Villages, “L'Avoiron”, from Yakima Valley, Washington. Division Wine Company (DWC) is a unique urban winery in Portland, Oregon whose wines are inspired by those of Beaujolais, France. DWC makes several Gamay-based wines that are incredibly expressive and rival those from that very region. The rosé is no exception with high-toned aromas of watermelon, strawberry, sour cherry and chalky earth.
It's time to rosé all day... at least for every Monday in July and August. Make your reservations here.
