On a recent WineWalkabout Adventure to discover new off the beaten path wine tasting areas, we came across a lovely surprise. A delightful wine called Blanc de Rouge, or to those prone to visual descriptors, like red or white, this is Rosé. Not usually one’s to purchase a Rosé colored wine, not for any particular reason, we just don’t. May have to look closer at this behavior, to find out what’s up with that. Anyway as we were saying, during this Adventure we came across this little gem from Sycamore Creek Vineyards. Nestled in the heart of historical Uvas Valley,in the Santa Clara AVA California, Sycamore Creek Vineyards & Winery is a small family-owned and operated winery producing limited amounts of hand-crafted wines. Now as it turns out this was a pre-release taste. Probably all the intelligent wine conversation that helped open this bottle (or just to shut Koala up). This was (drank it already) a captivating drop of wine. Great refreshing red fruit flavors with just the right amount of sweetness and a clean finish. This is a great summer wine, or on second thoughts, for any time you would like it. A great wine to take to a summer picnic or BBQ and one that will be enjoyed by all (we did this last Monday). The Blanc de Rouge is a solid 6+ and ****, so buy a case if they will let you. So go on by Sycamore Creek Vineyards and tell em we sent you and ask quietly about the Blanc de Rouge.
To happy Weeknight Wine!
