This Eyrie Vineyards Rosé of Pinot Noir has become one of my favorite summer wines!
Did you know that today is National Rosé Day? Probably not......until I started food blogging I had no idea how many different national food days there were! While I'm sure I could never keep up with all of them, nor do any of us really need to either, since Rosé is one of my new favorite varietals, I thought it was a good excuse to do a quick post and share my new favorite with you! That favorite is Eyrie Vineyards Rosé of Pinot Noir.
I got two bottles of this wine with my wine club shipment - and they sure didn't last long. I'm definitely going to be ordering a few more!! If you are a fan of Oregon wines I'd definitely check out their wine club - I've been very happy with everything I've received and the cost of shipments is very reasonable.
Eyrie Vineyards is known for their Pinot Noir so it is no surprise to me that this is a wonderful wine. This wine is a bit darker in color than some Rosés. I'd describe it as more pink than salmon. One thing that makes this particular Rosé different from most is that it is aged in oak, for 6 months according to Eyrie.
It has a bit of fruit flavor with a very nice finish. It's a great afternoon drinking wine, and would pair nicely with many things - maybe these Fish Tacos or even this Shrimp & Udon Noodle Bowl. Or just some afternoon snacks - I served it last week with chips, guacamole and mango salsa which was a delicious combo!!
Eyrie Vineyards is located in McMinnville, Oregon.
