WINE OF THE WEEK
This is another delightful rose from the Sumiere family of Chateau Maupague. It is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Cinsault from their Cotes de Provence vineyards of the historic Domaine du Cabaret estate in the village of Trets just outside of Aix-en-Provence. It was of course fermented in stainless steel and has great acidity underneath red berry fruit and a distinctive garrigue note of sage and dried herbs. It is a little lighter in body than the Sainte Victoire rose but is still fresh and clean. It finishes with a slight stony minerality - perfect to enjoy with Springtime cuisine or perfectly fine on its own.

Why We Love Merlot... April 27, 2015
It's really a shame Miles had to go and ruin Merlot for everyone in that fateful movie, Sideways. Of course it's the ultimate irony that the 1961 Cheval Blanc he finally consumed out of a styrofoam cup at the end is a blend of Cabernet Franc and....Merlot. (That’s just a little detail someone on the writing or production team didn’t seem to know about. They probably should have chosen a left bank Bordeaux instead, which wouldn’t have such a significant percentage of Merlot, but I digress.)
