I Matched (most) of My Single Socks

Few adulting chores feel both as trivial and as satisfying as matching a bunch of your single socks.  Maybe we should all give up and just buy a jumbo Costco bag of black socks and be done with it.

Now that this dumb task is done you can reward yourself.  I think that a task that a child can do (won’t do but could do) and that an adult can do without straining anything, deserves an uncomplicated, pretty drink.



There is a new book, a whole book, on Understanding Rosé. Click on that link and take a look at it on Amazon.

Here is a great video about Rosé which will give you a great deal of information.  It includes -how Rosé is made, how to tell quality and he uses the phrase “mass-produced Plonk” and that alone is worth the price of admission.

Here is a benchmark Rosé – it is from Provence, the heart of French Rosé territory.  If you can find this bottle, you are a lucky one.  It has notes of cream and strawberry, really lovely.  This baby will retail around $20-30 and is worth it.

Here is a wine of similar price but from California. It is made from Pinot Noir grapes and tastes of watermelon, with notes of orange peel and rose petals.  Around $20.

From the wonderful Okanagan Valley comes The View Winery and their Pinotage based wines.  Here is a blended rose: Pinotage, Baco Noir, Pinot Noir and some white aromatic wines blend into a quick selling, easy drinking patio sipper.  It is about $18.  This winery also does a straight up Pinotage rose which, in my opinion, is even better – more fresh fruit, red cherry, watermelon and crushed strawberry.
