What I’m Tasting: Pink Fizz!

A few standouts from the last few days. First up, a blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Auxerrois, and Pinot Blanc. Wonderfully tart and zippy, with the flavor of ripe pears. So good.

Next were a pair of reds from Mas de Daumas Gassac, a winery whose wines I always enjoy – they keep a nursery of unusual and native varieties to the area, and I like that their wines always have nice fresh, juicy fruit, even when there’s a little more oak and smoke in the mix, too.

But to be honest, my favorite wine of theirs is their slightly off-dry rose sparkler made with young Cabernet Sauvignon vines. The fizz is wonderfully foamy and lively, and its fruity sweetness reminds me of expensive farmers’ market strawberries. YUM!
