"Fun Was Never So Pink"

So says McPherson Cellars.

Their 2012 Dry Vin Gris Rosé is a must have as this summer season is winding down. Crisp, acidic and BRIGHT pink, this rosé is a blend of Cinsault, Mouvédre and Grenache. There's no short finish here, this wine is not only bright in color but has bright flavors of berries. This wine is versatile and pairs wellwith a patio, light dinner or your favorite summer dish.

I'm no newcomer to this Texas (yes,Texas) winery. Les Copains, a white blend, was served at my Thanksgiving dinner last year and I've been purchasing a bottle of their wine every time I come across it.

It's no secret that Kim McPherson has figured out the perfect balance, quality, and flavors needed to make successful, popular wines from the Lone Star state. He is spearheading the movement that wine can be made (and made well) in unlikely places. As their website says "Texas Wines with a Pioneering Spirit".

Another great advantage to McPherson wines are their reasonable prices, most under $20! Here in the DC/MD/VA region, you can find these wines in numerous wine shops and restaurants. If you haven't tasted these wines before, seek them out, you won't be disappointed.
