One bottle in front and two in the background?

Woot... Come on... You know I would rather have the right side up one in front and the two in the back upside down...

sunshine on my shouldersot.com (guy-OH) says "Made in a particularly robust style of rosé, this wine boasts a gorgeous, deep ruby color. On the nose, it offers cherry candy and wild strawberry aromas. It is mouth-filling without being too robust, with berry flavors and a pleasing cranberry bitterness at the back of the palate. Serve with wood-fired pizzas, grilled beef, falafel, fish tacos or just about any other full-bodied summer food.

Sounds nice, but they only give it 14/20 which is "Good".

Note: That should be g-a-y-o-t.com, without the dashes. Somehow my iPad, then my desktop computer, keep substituting sunshineonmyshoulders for the word "g-a-y"! Wonder what's up with that? Are you doing that, Woot?

review link changed by woot filter!?



Looks like that review is for the rosé.

I did not find much on this wine.

"...my favorites were the Grenache and Syrah. The Grenache was fragrant, light and delicate. Rather nice and made completely naturally."
spiltwine.com

"...great name, nice people, and a really tasty Grenache."
evewine101.com

"This is definitely a wine you can sink your teeth into! Rich, concentrated dark-berry flavors and notes of spices like cloves and cinnamon lead to a bone-dry finish that goes on and on. "
clubw.com

Edit: and another one:
"Martian Vineyard's 2009 Grenache is a standout, showing dusty berries and cherries on the nose and a very earthy minerality on the palate. At $24, it's well worth the price."

Oops, my mistake. I was pretty sleepy when I posted that. They should take my quality post back.

I haven't tried this one yet, but it's another Rhone varietal sourced from Camp 4 vineyards in Santa Ynez, so I'm anxious to taste.

Demetria's Mike Roth recently took on winemaker duties at Martian Ranch, and any place that he's associated with interests me...

They don't mention the Martian Ranch, but if you are afraid of Grenache, there's a lot to like about it as this recent article suggests:

There's no activity at all here today. I feel sorry for the winery. All of Woot Nation seems to be camped at the main site waiting for their chance at at Bunnies Ogling Carrots

It was released Fall 2011 as part of a club member release. It is surprisingly good with a nice combo of fruit and spice. Alcohol is 15% which is typical for Zin. My only bottle unfortunately.

Anything from Andrew Murray is good. :-)

Thinking a bit of winery participation may have helped, a little. Jus' sayin'...
or RATS.

Humm, finish off the Pedroncelli four grape port we opened last night?

2010 Concannon Reserve Chardonnay. Used for cooking seared halibut with white wine mushroom sauce. One of the best QPR chards I have found yet at my $14 club price.

Have tried this wine on a few occasions and really dig it. I know the vineyard well that the grapes are sourced from - Estelle Vineyard, very close to Camp 4 Vineyard, where I get some of my grenache from. It is a warmer climate vineyard, so the wines from here tend to be more fruit forward with great spice elements as well.

I know Nan, the owner of Martian Ranch, and she truly is committed to putting out top quality stuff. Not sure of the oak treatment or chemistry of the wine - really wish I was . . .

But to me, it's certainly worth a flyer - and it's less than $15 per bottle . . .

And here's a link to the grenache write up on their site:
