Rocks By Cornerstone
Always enjoy this time of year when the new releases hit the streets especially Rocks by Cornerstone.....White, Red and Rose. Versatile fun food friendly wines meant to drink now. Share these with friends at your next dinner party or cocktail get together. They taste more expensive than their price tag!
I started with the 2014 White Rocks a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Orange Muscat. Aromas of peach, grapefruit and tangerine with a citrus zest. Crisp and tropical on the nose. The mouth explodes with flavor sweet peach, pink grapefruit, ripe pear and sliced tangerine, with a lemon zest finish. The longer I taste a hint of green apple. Intriguing complexity of flavors and really tasty. I paired this with Mongolian Chicken. Quality juice Craig!
Up next is big brother 2013 Red Rocks a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Pinot Noir. Nice earthy aroma . The fruit is big with blackberry, cherry, raspberry and blueberry with a white pepper spice. Excellent juicy character with cherry and blackberry followed by smooth blueberry. The finish is long with a nice earthy/spice tone. I paired this with bbq baby back ribs and I declare a home run!
Now who wants to stop by Cornerstone Cellars and grab your own bottles of Rocks!
