I have a french one (2007 Verget du Sud Vin de Pays de Vaucluse Rosé de Syrah), that is okay, but nothing spectacular.

I've had lots of dry Pinot Noir rose. I'd be interested in hearing at what temperature the Syrah Rose is recommended for optimum quaffing?

I have had Moon Mountain's Syrah Rose ($20 Price point), and it is excellent. Very good, very dry. The only Semillon I have had is from Distefano in Washington; also very good.

Spent a bunch on wine already this month, with 2 club shipments, the Dry Creek reds, and a trip to Southern Illinois wine country (surprisingly good- anyone else been there?), although I am quite tempted here, I'll probably have to give it the miss.

The original Saxon Brown offering was one of my first wine.woots and still one of my favorites: I was in for 3 of the reds as soon as I saw them on Monday.

I'm not a big drinker of whites, so I was a little disapointed by this offering . . . until I read the descriptions on the winery's web site. Jeff's wine is fantastic, and based on those descriptions these whites will really deliver.

In for 2 sets!

Rosé - any type - is hands down the most wine I drink, probably 3-4 bottles a week 9 months a year. Absolutely no way I could resist this, despite my less than stellar SB Syrah experience (though it seems it was likely cooked).

My wine cellar is filling up quickly...

I am in the same boat, I just got both dry creek offers, the twisted oak offer (the 2 pack and twisted both came today, along with one of the decanters from WDs sig, and the decanter is really nice, very sturdy and just looks great), and I ordered the first half of this week. I really want to save my money... but I have never had either varietal being offered here. Curiosity may just win over by Sunday, maybe if WD picks out some more rats I could be convinced, but there arent usually rats on 2nd half offerings are there? Maybe since the half of the 1st half received the wrong vintage we could get another round? Anyone else following this train of thought?

winemaker's notes for the 2006 Syrah Rosé (Dry), Flora Ranch Vineyard, Chalk Hill:

Winemaking:
Unlike most dry Rosé, ours is not the by-product of another wine. Our Syrah Rosé was made specifically for this dry Rosé wine. The grapes were picked in the cool early morning at 24.5 brix. We whole fruit pressed only ¾ of the juice in order to minimize the astringent influence of the stems and seeds. The wine was cold tank fermented using a very low rate of yeast for over 90 days at 55F. The unusually slow and cool fermentation is designed to preserve the vibrant fruit character that can easily be “blown off” by a warmer, faster fermentation. Our Flora Ranch Syrah Rosé was bottled in a clear hock vessel to show off its delicate pink hue.

Tasting Notes:
As with the first fresh strawberries of the summer, opening a bottle of our Flora Ranch Dry Rosé is a sensory delight. Vibrant flavors of juicy strawberry, stone fruit, white flower and orange zest abound in the lively mouthfeel and persist through the lingering bright yeasty finish.

Cellaring: 2 to 4 years

Case Production: Less than 250 cases
Retail Price: $20/Bottle

Hadn't seen my name in lights in a while; in for 1. Thanks for the whites lately, WD! I'd normally love to labrat one of these . . . but hubby and I are leaving Friday morning for a long weekend. I guess it's only prudent that I pull my name from consideration in these circumstances.

others here will wax / are waxing poetic about the Syrah Rose, so i'll take up the cause of the Sémillon, the varietal that serves as the backbone of the oft overlooked & oft phenomenal White Bordeaux (w/ Sauv Blanc being the other white varietal). i have not had the Sémillon from this particular vineyard but have had Jeff's 2006 Saxon-Brown Sémillon Old Vine Field Blended Casa Santinamaria Vineyards & loved it. if that one is any indication of this one, then i am really excited by the prospect of yet another stellar white, and i am really looking forward to the Brat notes on it.

These I have to try! So I pushed the stupidly large gold button...my question for Jeff is: What is the best drinking temperature for these wines? And, please tell me they're ready now?!? I really enjoy lighter wines in the summer, slightly chilled, but since I've never had either of these two, I'd like to make sure chilling won't "kill" them. Thanks!

And what if WD sends me the Rose? We could have a labrattage gathering to have a number of NYC tasters sample these lovely wines.

Is that an offer WD could actually refuse?

In very early for once thanks to the wind kicking up and waking me up. Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll give me a special LR for the second offering.

So, sure I'm being a bit of a smart-ass here, but at least two of the "winemaker's descriptions" for this week have mentioned picking the grapes in the "cool early morning". Does this really affect the wine that comes from the grapes, or is it more about not being stuck in the field under the midday sun? Or is it prose ?

Anyway, just curious as to the real impact of time of day the grapes are picked.

I'm definitely going to need pairing advice for these. I think I've had one or two roses in my life (or my wine-drinking life, aka the past year or two), and never semillon, although I do have one that I'm cellaring at the moment. And one of those two roses was horribly paired with a TJ's chickenburger+guac.

Ugh, in for one. Next week better be resistible.

just my wineaux impressions for your consideration until Jeff has the opportunity to answer your questions directly...

i've had the Syrah Rose & a vintage sibling (different vineyard) of the Semillon. as for the Syrah Rose, i think that it is definitely best served slightly chilled (w/ the emphasis on slightly) & that it is definitely ready to drink now. as for the Semillon, i have not had this particular wine, but judging from its vintage sibling, my guess would be that you would likely enjoy it at anywhere from room temperature (which is how i prefer to drink fuller-bodied whites) to chilled & that it would likely be ready to drink now.

hope that helps - and, Jeff, please correct any of the above impressions.

EDIT: Jeff's response below.
