When it comes to suggesting a wine for Mother’s Day there can be no debate. It’s Rosé and only Rosé. Actually it can be anything you want, but when it comes to traditions and suggestions, this is is one I’m a ardent supporter of.
For as long as this blog continues, this will be a tradition. This is why I’m a bit sad that I skipped last year for no good reason at all. Maybe I was busy. But you or I should never be too busy to celebrate a member of your family, whether it’s a parent, sibling, child, grandparent, aunt, cousin, and of course pet.
Here is my Mother’s Day post from two years ago. Where did the time go? Oh wait it’s over here!
I love this time of year. The days are getting longer. The days are going to continue to get longer. And those smells. I love the smell of freshly cut grass, flowers, roses, and Rosé. Yes, Rosé has a distinct smell that is unforgettable. I can’t explain it.
Actually yes I can, but it would take too long and take the fun out of the celebration.
The 2016 Vine Select Rosé from Noble Vines is one of those vintages that reminds me of why I love wine drinking in the first place.
I’ve had the privilege over the past few years to sample their creative and endearing wines without looking into the what the numeric significance these wine entailed. After reading the back of the label I’m even more grateful to have chosen this wine as a celebration of Mother’s and motherly figures in general.
At only $12, the price is another reason to celebrate. It’s a wine the has that distinct Rosé aroma with that iconic salmon color.
But going back to the label… If more wineries explained themselves in an even more accessible fashion I would be supporting them without hesitation. The notes mention that they call this their 515 Blend because that’s the time they open their wine at home. What’s even more endearing is they say they enjoy their flavors with any type of food.
Now I’m all for suggestions and the power of suggestion but I love when nothing else needs to be said. Most wines can be paired with a wide variety of foods. Just because a few obscure and sometimes over-the-top meals are suggested with wines doesn’t make that final.
There are some exceptions. Some foods bring out the cheapness of a wine and I’ve had wines that had no business being paired with certain meals. But a lot of this is common sense, and trial and error. Many Rosé wines are created to be celebrated with all kinds of fun meals.
They’re more importantly created to be celebrated with all kinds of wonderful people.
This is one of those wines that when shared with people, great conversation, and great energy that’s going to get better with time and with each sip. It has that likability and sustainability. Even though I had it on my own, I could see this becoming better when around great source energy. The same can be said for many wines, but this certainly applies here.

Adding to the theme of being approachable and accessible, their website is simple, to the point, and information is easily attainable.
I want to toast all the amazing mother’s, including mine. And then I want to thank the motherly figures who are currently in my life and those who had a profound effect on me just once or twice.
You’re thought about and thanked about more than you know. Whether you’re a mother to some kids, to some pets, or to something else glorious in this universe, it all matters. It’s all relevant and it’s all to be celebrated and appreciated. Thank you so much.
And what Mother’s Day would be complete without some sort of floral arrangement. Luckily, the displays found me, and I didn’t have to go far to find some beautiful ones.
You’re all beautiful ones.
