Re: California 2017

2017 is my wedding year so I’d like to buy a decent amount of bottles to last the years. Already started with Sandlands, bedrock, Dirty & Rowdy. If the winery is releasing the wine, I’ll buy it. That being said, I don’t buy on the same scale as others around here neener

Re: The search for a “wow” Rosé

I know it’ll be dependent on the producer, vintage and how it’s stored, but is there a hard cut off for roses to be drank? I know my first 2 year old rose recently and it was the best I’ve had. Do most roses get better with a year or two under belt?

Re: The search for a “wow” Rosé

Just had a 2016 Tercero. The best I’ve had. Don’t be afraid to let your rose sit for a year or two. I’ve been wanting to try Tempier but can’t get myself to pay $36 when I can get Tercero or Bedrock for much cheaper

Does this mean the Sonoma cab is sold out? Or just means you were not allocated any? Or possibly both?

Price range? I’m a big fan of the Vilmart Rubis cuvée which can be had for around $50, as well as the Paul Bara rose which can be found for $40-50 I believe. Even cheaper, I think Schramsberg Brut rose would be fine
