In August 2014 my dear friend Sarah O’Dwyer was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer.  Sarah tackled this diagnosis like she would any problem…head on. She researched various treatment options, met with multiple doctors at various top hospitals, and had a spreadsheet for clinical trials that even impressed her doctors.  On April 13, 2017 Sarah left us, and we miss her every day.   Sarah was an amazing person. A true friend to many, loyal and honest, and for those that knew her, just a little bit sassy. Ovarian cancer took Sarah, but not her legacy.

Sarah’s friends and family came together last weekend to raise funds in support of Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA) under Sarahs name.  Sip & Savor donated a three course dinner and accepted donations.  John and I are very happy to report that our guests blessed us with $1742 in donations and, added to our other fundraisers to honor Sarah, we raised over $29,000.

We are so thankful for our loyal guests.  Thank you.

Rosés and Bubbles
We picked the perfect week for this tasting. It’s 100 degrees out there and we are in it now (Texas summer, that is). Come by and cool off with our great tasting tonight!!

 

Rosés
Bieler Père et Fils Rosé Reserve, Bandol, Provence
The classic Provence Rosé profile is what every serious winemaker around the
world attempts to mimic and for good reason. Our goal is always to find the
delicate balance between floral, herbal, wild red fruit (not overly ripe) and acid.
Most years, one aspect or another dominates so we work on enhancing the other qualities, but that was not this year. In 2016, the fruit naturally found a beautiful balance between red fruit and the acid structure without either overpowering each other, or the savory, citrus and mineral core.

2016 Sanglier Sun Tusque, Sonoma County
We are fanatics for traditional Rose. Crisp bright, refreshing- summer in a glass. As you pour this wine, fresh picked strawberries, rose water, and hints of watermelon and orange envelop your senses. Take a sip and the strawberry you smelled begins to coat your palate. Subtle flavors build in the mid palate through the finish. Yes, summer in a glass

 

Bubbles
Mumm Brut Prestige, Napa Valley
Brut Prestige is Mumm Napa’s signature sparkling wine. It is a relaxed, yet elegant, wine that earns sparkling accolades from consumers and critics alike. Brut Prestige features fine bright citrus, red apple, stone fruit and creamy vanilla aromas, with hints of toast, honey and gingerbread spice. Its vibrant flavors are balanced by fine acidity and a rich, lingering finish.

Reginato rosé of Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina
Malbec seems an unlikely hero for a sparkling wine grape, but when you want your rosé to show some real color and character, then Malbec’s your man. Crisp and dry with lovely strawberry, rhubarb flavors and aromas. Just a hint of tannin structure, floral spice, and an amazing elegant finish rounds out the mouth.
