Yes Way Rosé! 2016 Summer Water Rosé Wine Review

2016 Summer Water Rosé Wine Review

Yes Way Rosé

I like it then I tasted it and I LOVE it!

Summer Water Rosé is a dry rosé that reflects the pink-tinted dream world of many.
The wine is perfectly crisp lighthearted, and destined for a good time.
Drink chilled with the ones you love, is what they say on the back label.

Summer Water is more than the rosé of the season, it’s a state
of mind – every drop full of pink-tinted possibility. This dry
rosé reflects the pale pink dream world of our partners, Yes
Way Rosé. It’s perfectly crisp, lighthearted and destined for
a good time. The grapes for this Central Coast Grenache and
Syrah blend were sourced primarily from cool climate areas
like Monterey and Santa Barbara County, and were picked at
21-23 brix for a high natural acidity that makes the wine ideal
for summer drinking. To ensure as little extraction from the skins
as possible, we used the direct press method, retaining the
delicate fruit aromas and pale color rosé is known for. The final
blend is a composition of many small fermentations, each treated
individually with care; the result is a lean and refreshing rosé with
notes of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white peach.

Fred's Red Mendocino County Red Wine

Fred’s Red Mendocino County Red Wine Review

Fred’s Red Mendocino County Red Wine, bottled by McNab Ridge Winery Ukiah, California.

The Fred’s Red label named after the original McNab dog, Fred, and like Fred is a blend of many things. In this case, a base blend of Syrah and Zinfandel but with a large number of little known Portuguese varietals thrown in. It’s fresh, clean, soft, and an infinitely gulpable and enjoyable wine to have with anything off the grill.

On The Back Label

My name is Fred, a McNab Shepherd- a working dog established in Mendocino County over 100 years abo by my Scottish ancestors. Back then, we herded sheep. Today, the McNabs on this ranch round up grapes. A sheep dog herding grapes, you say? You may think I’m barking up the wrong vine here, but grapes, patrolling the vineyard, trying to remember where I buried that bone. I’m very particular about flavor and choose only select vines under which to bury my best bones. Better flavor, better aging. You’re sure to like Fred’s Red and so will your canine-loving friends. Cheers!
