…I’m an animal lover.
But that doesn’t equate to expert wine analysis, but that’s not the point of this post, or many of my stories. The intent is to give a lighthearted perspective with a bit of knowledge thrown in here and there.
I’m always learning, and when it comes to wine, it’s an going journey with a destination that hopefully never ends. There was a dopey cliche somewhere in there, but it’s true.
The sun is finally out, and it took a lot longer, but good things come to those… Yeah another cliche. But good things come to those who deserve it or don’t think about it. It just comes, and it comes to them.
So it came to us and with a vengeance in some ways… We’ve been bad and I guess we’ve finally been good and been rewarded with sun, life, daylight, and all the good things that Spring traditionally brings.
With that bring us Rosé season. I know for many, it’s their favorite. Folks that don’t fully embrace wine will drink Rosé for it’s simplistic qualities, for the color, the symbolism of Spring (and what’s to come), and all the good things in life.
Some take Rosé a bit more seriously when it comes to wine drinking. It’s treated just like any other, like a peer, and like any wine that can be paired with a good meal or savored alone, or with dear friends.
Ironically the Syrah Rosé from Spy Pig (I get a laugh just typing that out and saying it out loud) is a lot more serious than on first viewing and initial sipping. This is a solid wine at a reasonable price. You should be able to find this for $10 and under at a retailer near you. Here’s where to buy, and more on their wines.
When a label is that endearing, you might think that it’s covering up deficiencies with the wine itself. This isn’t the case here. And for something so affordable, you know what you’re getting it and depending on your palate, it’s either a pleasant surprise or meets expectations.
I’m not even the biggest Rosé fan, and I found this enjoyable. Life changing it’s not, but it’ll make your day for sure. And that’s an important of life.
On a warm day like today, the color even looks more lively, and with red berries on the nose, and on the palate, it’s a simple, welcoming, and heartwarming wine that will make anyone feel good.
After an extended winter that has truncated Spring, this has been long overdue. But like I said good things come, good things come in all kinds of packages and labels, and any chance to symbolically appreciate our animal friends, no matter how eccentric or enigmatic it might be, I’m all for it.
To say that my snacks (think you may recognize ’em) were subconsciously paired with my wine, could be an understatement. In many instances, things just work out like that.
It’s those stories that might linger and feel memorable over time, as I look back and read memoirs from the past, or it could be a footnote. I certainly doubt the latter. Everything has a bigger meaning than just what’s right in front of you. Sometimes what’s in front of you is all you have, and sometimes you don’t know what you have until after the fact.
Where I’m going with this, I’m not quite sure. This wine was simply fun, and I get the feeling this only the beginning with the Rosé wine discussion.
Only time will tell what’s next, and what will be discussed next week.
Peace Be With You.
