Now onto Yitz’s weekly wine review of the Jezreel Valley Rosé 2019.
“I am an investor in a “double-bottom-line” wine producer that sells its product directly to consumers. Pre-COVID, the company sold tens of thousands of bottles of wine per day. Over the past month the company has been selling hundreds of thousands of bottles per day. I suspect that many of readers of this column are part of this explosion in wine sales during this trying time (I know that I am). I recently relocated to Napa Valley to more easily socially distance myself and to more aggressively support the local wine industry. I will be drinking quite a bit of wine during the epidemic and look forward to sharing the experience with you.”
“The first wine that I had while enjoying the California spring weather, is the Jezreel Valley 2019 Rosé. This wine is a blend of Carignan, Syrah, Argaman and Sauvignon Blanc. This is a happy wine. The drinker finds himself immediately content. The finish is long, especially for a Rosé, and the mid-palate has hints of pomegranate juice. Drink this while eating grapes, cheese and crackers. Serve it cold, and make sure you have more than one bottle as one just simply will not do.”
