Great notes on the Curran Grenache rose. It turns out that this is actually made with Grenache gris grapes and is technically not a rose - but the TTB has not recognized grenache gris as a stand alone variety as of yet and therefore this can't be put on the label ...

just a bit more background info ...

Cheers!

Greg, Thanks for the review. You always remind me that our we are blessed by family, friendships, wine and food. Of course, that's love. I do recognize places, people, events and wines. Thanks for that, too. Being the history geek, I have to point out that Ben Franklin made his comment about beer. No matter. God does wants us to be happy. She has given us wine, beer, food, family, and friends to assure that this life will always hold the possibility of awe and joy.
