Have you had a warm day in your neighborhood yet? That means it’s almost rosé season people! For this edition of Wine Wednesday, I wanted to introduce you to a lovely bottle of blush that you need to add to your wine rotation this summer (and not just because the label is rurl pretty too).
Tank Garage Winery in Calistoga, CA (my favorite little corner of the Napa Valley) produces small collections of “one off,” uniquely-crafted wines to celebrate the unique characteristics of vintage California culture. Their annual collection includes rosé, delicious red blends and aromatic chardonnays all with unique flavor profiles. But the rosé had me at hello. Crisp, light, but with a nice body that’ll stand up to some tasty treats – a good bright goat cheese and crackers is a personal fave – this rosé is the perfect summer accessory.
I also love that Tank thinks about design outside of the bottle too. A lover of labels, Tank partners with artists and illustrators to create unique label designs for each bottle to showcase the stories and embody the taste of their wine blends. Along with the rosé I’m really into the 2015 All or Nothing red blend, and not just for both the name and the kickass label design. But it sure is fun to have a good lookin’ wine bottle on your table.
While you can’t get Tank everywhere, you can order it online. I can confidently say the entire family of Tank wines is a yummy and rather cool option to add to your summer wine collection. I am curious. What do you struggle with when it comes to wine? Good values? How to pair with food? How to figure out what you like? I’d love to help dive into more questions so let me know in comments below!
