Tasting Wine

Gruet Brut Rosé, Good Friends and Good Food at Smash Wine

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!
