Seth's Notes:

Wine drinkers and wine professional alike are often guilty of clambering to pull corks as soon as possible on the newest releases of rosé fearing that at any moment those beautiful flavors will fall off the cliff and we’ve missed our moment.  Although many bottles of rosé do drink best young, some incarnations develop engaging complexity if we can only exhibit a bit of patience and give them time.  Bring on the ‘Laughing Pig’ 2022 Rosé from our friends at Big Table Farm.  Specialists at raising Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – as well as hens, pigs and cows – this delicate incarnation of Pinot Noir, given a little bit of time in the bottle, brings forward umami and tea notes that add depth to the still the vibrant aromas and flavors of strawberries, cherries, orange pith and spice that lead to a rich mouthfeel and a long, complex, and vibrant finish.

What's Cooking?

A plethora of charcuterie, but if you can wait, save a bottle for  first ‘mater sandwich of the summer.

What do I like to drink?

I tend to lean into ‘old world’ styles of wines - but that doesn’t mean only wines from the old world - that have great acidity to them. These wines are naturally food friendly... and I like to do some damage in the kitchen. But overall I’m a very seasonal wine drinker - warm weather has me leaning into fresh rosés and vibrant whites and when the weather turns cool, I love some Nebbiolo and heavier reds to go with the braised and richer foods of the season.
