Today’s Wine Review


Spring is in full swing in the Northwest. I can’t believe all of the beautiful blooming bushes and plants here. There are so many new and different plants here that I’ve never seen before. There’s one that has white blooms that are multiple tiny flowers growing in the shape of spikes and smell like cotton candy. And lucky me, I live behind a Master Gardener so I can sit on my deck and soak up all of her beautiful garden. Of course I’m sitting there with a glass of wine in my hand too.

My latest wine I’ve tried is a Rosé from Oregon. Acrobat Winery is an Oregon winery in Eugene, which is south of Portland on 5 Highway, just down the road a ways from us. Acrobat Rosé is made from Pinot Noir grapes. It was a light pink almost peach hue in the glass. The wine had light floral notes in the glass and a hint of citrus. The wine tasted light and clean with a dry finish. The wine, vintage 2014 had an alcohol content of 13.5% and is very affordable. I paid under $15 a bottle. You can find Acrobat on the internet at http://www.acrobatwinery.com.

This is another one of the types of wine I drink when I’m home alone. When I am home all by myself I tend to drink lighter wines, Moscato, Riesling or Rosé. For some dumb reason I feel like I’m cheating on Mitch if I drink a big red wine without him. Dumb huh? I need to work on my guilt feelings. Maybe I should buy 2 bottles of the same wine, then he’ll never know.
