“My name is Kaitlin, and I am a Rose Addict.” Ahhh… it feels good to admit it. I am powerless to resist the charms of Rose this summer. It’s all I want. I try to want other wines, I really do. But when you hit on something as delicious as this Vinho Verde Rose, and it costs a ridiculous $10, it’s hard to fathom drinking anything else.
Check out it’s gorgeous, almost electric pink color! She’s a purty one. The color itself is just screaming “drink me!” Something this vibrant in color just has to be delicious! And it is. It’s fresh and quenching the way a Vinho Verde was intended to be, but offers exciting flavors of strawberry soda, watermelon, and fizzy sweet tarts. Its finish has a perfect lip-smacking “grip” that makes you feel instantly refreshed!
What to pair with this wine? Hmmm. How about a 100-degree day? We have no shortage of those around here. Or maybe a pool? a lake? the beach? or just a back porch? I know, I know- I’ve said all these things before. But I feel very passionately that this Rose should be consumed at all of those places. I know from experience! Of course, I’ve also consumed it in boring places like my couch. Which miraculously became extremely un-boring once I added a glass of Las Lilas! It’s true, you must try it.
Here’s a shameful moment in my life as a Rose drinker that I’d like to share; I feel compelled to purge myself and just give in to my total and complete Rose obsession- because at this point, there’s nothing else to be done. So there may have been a bottle of Las Lilas in my refrigerator at some point recently, and I may have been reaching for the cream for my morning coffee, when… I glanced at Las Lilas and suddenly thought “that would taste good right now.” I should also admit- I don’t do much before I’ve had coffee- including talk to people. But this thought entered my head with 100% seriousness. So deep is my devotion to pink wine, and this wine in particular, that I really thought about having some first thing in the morning. And that concludes the How Big of a Lush am I? portion of this entry.
If this goes on much longer, I might turn into this:
“I just really love this wine… I want it on a porch… I want it in a pool… I want to taste it all the time!! …and… wait a minute, what I really want to say is… *sniffff*… Oh, I’m SORRY, I was just thinking about how much I love this WINE… again! and I just got all choked up when I thought of all the people out there that haven’t tried it! aaaand… who might LOVE it the way I do! I mean, there’s so much bad wine out there, and this one just needs people to LOVE it! that’s all it needs! *blows nose* ..ohhh, I just can’t handle iiiit!”
Does anyone know if that video is for real??
Lastly, you can sample this wine tomorrow, July 9th from 12-2 at Cellar’s big ‘ol wine sale from 12-2! Or any night of the week, as it’s by the glass. For a while. Maybe forever.
