    Give It A Shot - Trader Joe's Espiral Vinho Rosé

    This episode brings us the latest installment in Keith’s attempt to find a rose wine that Andrew will truly enjoy. It was actually recommended by a Trader Joe’s regular who really knows what he is talking about when he is talking about wine. Another cool thing about this wine is that we have already had something from this winery that we enjoyed. The beverage we will be trying is the Espiral Vinho Rose, from Portugal. Like the Vinho Verde which we referenced before, it has a slight effervescence when you first pour it that quickly dissipates. What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Trader Joe's Brut Rosé North Coast Sparkling Wine

    How can it be that we are in the last month of the year already? The holidays are rapidly approaching and along with them come the build up, craziness, fun, love, laughter, and of course, delicious beverages we know and love about this time of the year. As we have done all year, we are here to guide you through the maze of wonderful options to help you make a choice that is perfect for however you celebrate the season. To start things off we have decided to visit a bubbly. While this type of beverage is most commonly thought of for end of the year celebrating, you may want to consider one (or two) for the weeks leading up to New Year’s as well. Perhaps even all year round. The beverage we will be trying today is the Trader Joe’s North Coast Reserve Brut Rose. This sparkler is available every year for a few months, usually beginning in early November, and is exclusive to Trader Joe’s.  What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.

    Give It A Shot - A to Z Winery Pinot Noir Rosé

    Recently we tried a rose wine that did not leave an indelible impression upon our palates. The previous years version had been quite enjoyable, but the current version could not replicate the gustatory memory as had been hoped. We didn’t want too much time to pass before delving back into the rose section of the wine cellar, so this week we bring you our first attempt at finding “Rose Redemption.” We will be trying a Pinot Noir rose from A to Z Wineworks out of Newberg Oregon. This is the 2016 vintage (the 2017 is out now as well) and was purchased for an amazing price.  What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Trader Joe's 2011 Josefina Syrah Rose

    Just passing the longest day of the year and being in the thick of summer, we thought it would be a good idea to enjoy some wine appropriate for the season.  Today we have the 2011 Josefina Syrah Rose from Trader Joe's.  This style usually comes with the stigma of being very sweet and not for "real" wine drinkers.  That has changed in the last several years as more and more winemakers are seizing the opportunity to make something light and refreshing while still retaining some complexity.  Will this value rose rise to the occasion?  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.
