Lazing around with my fellow shibe, who is way too chipper for me today. Raspberries, red flowers, rosewater, strawberries, and the tiniest hint of clove on the nose. Bright strawberries, raspberries and tart cherries on the palate with a bit of baking spice on the palate. Very perfumed and lovely.

2017 Julien Braud “Forty Ounce” Rosé

2017 Julien Braud “Forty Ounce” Rosé

Rockin’ some 40-oz rosé with my beats. Okay, okay it’s not actually 40 oz – it’s actually a liter but close enough! Plus this is organic wine made with natural yeast and it shows in the beautiful pink color. White and red strawberries and grapefruit on the nose. Very fruity on the palate with strawberry and ruby red grapefruit notes on the palate. Fun, interesting packaging. Nice enough color that you shouldn’t put it in a brown paper bag! Ain’t nothing that rich folk like more/ than going downtown and slummin’ it with the poor.

It’s full-on rosé season up in my piece, y’alls! And this one’s German to boot! Apples, ruby red grapefruit, white and underripe strawberries on the nose. A bit of tingly prickliness on the tongue. Red apples, red grapefruit, and strawberries on the palate.
