I recently met a few good friends at Smash Wine for a ladies night. All three of us have children ages 5 and under, so it was quite the treat to get out of the house.
Smash Wine not only offers a nice selection of wines, but they also offer flights. So, I decided to go with the Bubbly Bubbly flight, well, because I like bubbly.
That is where I met Gruet Brut Rosé – a delicious combination of Rosé and Sparkling Wine. It was a beautiful blush color and had a nice sweetness on the palette. My flight also included Jelo Prosecco Brut and G Sparkling Gamay, but the Gruet was really the star. I savored my glass and really was wishing for more, more, more.
For dinner, I had a carrot pappardelle with Italian sausage and a red sauce. It was quite delicious and I felt the pasta and the wine were quite the duo.
Gruet Winery is in New Mexico. I didn’t realize there were wineries in New Mexico, but I am quite pleased – the Brut Rosé is one I would like to drink more of!
