Staff Pick Notes

Treat yourself to this delicious, flavorful rosé this summer. It has everything going for it: lush strawberry and tart cranberry flavors, a round supple texture and just the tiniest hint of tannin on the finish. It pairs brilliantly with cedar plank salmon, grilled scallops or smoked brisket. Set aside the pale rosé and give the Horse and Plow Rosé a try. The Horse and Plow winery is a husband and wife project that sources organically grown grapes from various vineyards along the northern coast of California. Their rosé is made from Carignan, Syrah and Grenache and is vinified with minimal added sulfites. This rosé has been my go-to for summer picnics and BBQs, rooftop and beach parties, and just hanging out at home with AC cranked.

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it...
