Mark and I did a wine tasting at J Vineyards & Winery located in Healdsburg, CA part of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. Photographed is their 2019 Rosé of Pinot Noir.
J Vineyards & Winery description: “Previously known as Vin Gris, our 2019 Rosé of Pinot Noir delivers the same vibrant cranberry hue, plush texture and delightfully ripe fruit-forward characteristics under a new name. Notes of alpine strawberry, watermelon, raspberry and kiwi stand out on the nose and at the forefront of the juicy palate, blending with zesty hints of mandarin and key lime brought together with a kiss of creaminess on the finish. Approachable and food-friendly, try this with barbecued oysters, fried chicken, watermelon gazpacho with pickled watermelon rind or a fresh goat cheese topped with wild strawberry aigre-doux.”
Mark and I love to go wine tasting. It is one of the few things that relaxes us on the weekends after a full work week. Its a great way to get a beautiful drive in, see some gorgeous vineyards and wineries, and taste some amazing new wines. Typically we explore boutique wineries. Some we are members at and others we are trying for the first time.
I always have my camera with me to take pictures of the grapevines, but I started to become fascinated this year by the wines itself. The way light and color change and play is truly beautiful. I am falling in love with these new works of patterns, almost marble like quality of the light playing with the wine itself in the glass.
