Spring And Summer Rose Wine Reviews
I am not much of a Rosés Wine person but after reviewing Rodale’s 8 Great Eco-Friendly Rosés, I think this summer hold’s some fresh new favorites from some old master of the world of crushing grapes.
Not being a connoisseur of wine I rely on my husband and good friends to guide me. I also pay attention when Rodale releases their choices. They seem to find hidden gems that meet my more organic or clean food choices.
Rodale’s 8 Great Eco-Friendly Rosé Wine
1. With spring around the corner thoughts of shorts and sandals cross our minds; how about a nice tart wine out of California? Ambyth Estate has a Rosé [$45] full of aroma and tastes of blood orange and crushed peony. It’s from a biodynamic winery in Paso Robles.
2. Martian Ranch and Vineyard is a favorite of past trips and they have a bursting red made from Mourvedre This is a 2014 vintage [$18] hearty wine for those summer steaks on the grill. It’s a mix of raspberries and smoke a perfect balance for an evening meal outside. Don’t let this delicious pink color fool you!
3. I confess I am not a Pinot Noir fan. To me there is an aftertaste, I can’t quite grow to like but this lighter blush wine is from Washington and if I am willing to try it I know the fans of this blend will stock up. Analemma Rosé Of Pinot Noir 2014 is not as expensive as the Ambyth Estate [$25] let me know your thoughts!
4. Organic vineyards have come a long way since I started searching for quality over twenty years ago. I never thought about New York state but Bloomer Creek Vineyard Dry Rosé 2013 [$20] near Cayuga Lake is one of the best for a tangy marmalade flavor. It’s a complex taste that I invite you to post your thoughts and comment below.
5. The idea of a Pinot Gris with hints of apple cider sounds almost too good to be true. This Ramato [$26] is made from white grapes yet still is Can you pick taste the hint of rich leather from the barrels? It’s from Donkey And Goat Filigreen Farm 
6. Back to the east coast, Rodale found a premium blend that is well worth it. La Garagista Lupo In Boca 2014 [$38] is from Vermont and pressed by foot. The only time I ever saw this done was in a movie with Keanu Reeves and in my neighbors backyard when he invited all the little girls on the block to ‘stomp grapes’ as he made his much-loved home-wines. This blend promises to be a bit acidic with an electrifying lemonade flavor mixed with strawberry.
7. Summer is the time of beautiful rose petals and this Oregon vintage [$20} is a dark, fragrant choice Willamette Valley. Another pinot Montinore Estate  washes across your palate a smooth flavor that will have you desiring more. Pinot people let me know. I do promise to try it but want you the reader’s expertise on this one!
8. Am I saving the best for last? Maybe but you be the judge. Shinn Estate Vineyards 2013 a Long Island estate delights with organic and biodynamic practices. This is a promising lush and indulgent wine for people like me who love a good wine at a low price point [$16]. It’s smooth and full of flavor reminding you cranberries aren’t just about winter holidays.
