Wine Tasting & August Social Recap

Wow, I needed this wine tasting. Too many crises and juggling way too much. It could not have come a day too soon. Since I last posted a lot continues to happen to limit my ability to post every day.  Yes, my crashed computer was misdiagnosed and then “fixed” but not really. Then three days later, fixed again only this time for real. But now that first fix is causing problems because it conflicts with much of my image editing software.

A Rose by any other name: Rosé

There is no doubt that at least in the south, it is rosé season.  For Gary and I that season lasts all year, but for most, rosé is saved for the warmer months.  Please note, I had planned to have reviews of about 5-6 rosé wines, but my allergies totally messed that up.  Over the weekend I tried two 2016 vintages from wineries  I have loved in the past but I really couldn’t tell you if I was drinking water or wine and I can’t imagine that is the wines fault.  My nose is a mess and my palate is coated if you…
