Procuring wines for our 3rd Annual Rosé Party….the tradition continues

It is Spring time in PNW after all, and we do get rain, but no amount of rain dampens our spirits to head out and discover & explore new wines in Woodinville!

Last weekend recap: Kevin and I had a great time! We picked up several cases of Woodinville Rosé wines for our 3rd annual Rosé party in August.

Novelty Hill Januik, Lauren Ashton, Gorman, Woodinville Wine Cellars and Mark Ryan all procured last weekend!

Below is our line up…. so far! I see some new releases coming up, and I’m waiting for John at JM Cellars to release his to add to our lineup! Rose 2015 partyWe also stopped in at Force Majeure Cellars for their release party, unbelievable reds, their wine maker is Todd Alexander, who relocated to Woodinville from  the Napa Valley to join this exciting time in the industry here. Here is an article from Jan 2015: http://www.greatn rthwestwine.com/2015/01/30/force-majeure-wine/ We chatted with winemaker Todd about the clay egg and tanks that he uses for some of his wines at Force Majeure, and his experience in Napa.

It’s serious when we are shopping for wines for our party! Kevin takes a cart!

Crossed the round abouts at Hollywood Schoolhouse district to pick up Gorman and Lauren Ashton Rosé. Only seasoned Woodinville wine tasters know you have to take that flag across the intersection there, people are flying around those round abouts. april 2014  (3)

When we got home, Kevin thought it would be fun to taste LA Cellars Rosé 2013/2014 side by side with our Sea Bass dinner. We liked the 2014, it had more melon flavor than the 2013 and the color is fantastic! Apr 2014 (2)

The Sea Bass dinner Kevin cooked up at home, we ate it out on the patio with our heat lamp flaming away, pretending its Summer is always fun. He also whipped up a prawn wrapped cajun scallop appetizer!

  1. Very nice. If it weren’t for you guys, I would be completely ignoring roses because of experiences during the eighties.
