We’ve never met a wine from Morgan Lee that we didn’t like. Or love. From Two Vintners Wines to Covington Cellars to his Full Pull partnership with Block Wines, Morgan Lee makes amazing wine. His array of wines is so large that we decided to focus on just a few that we have enjoyed recently – a Grenache Blanc, two Syrahs and a Syrah-Cab Sauvignon blend from Two Vintners, and a value red from Covington.

When we think of Saviah Cellars wine, we first think of Syrah. The next words that come to mind are Funk In The Rocks District.

And he is one of our favorite Washington state winemakers.
From the special wine, The Funk, to The Stones Speak, to the every-day wine, The Jack, these wines rock. Yes, pun intended. But we recently discovered we adore Saviah Cellars Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon too.

Pair food-friendly rosé with seafood, triple-cream cheeses, shellfish, smoked salmon, salads, pasta, grilled chicken, grilled lamb, Asian dishes or red-berry desserts. Or simply drink rosé without food, as a refreshing summer sipper.
Here are seven stellar rosés that we enjoyed — three from Washington state, two from France and one each from Oregon and California. Continue reading
