We have had lots of calls and foot traffic on this little gem since it was mentioned it today's Washington Post. Perfect burger wine and just delicious. Glad to see it get some nice press!
Two Birds One Stone Rouge 2020
Vin de France,
$13 (that's their price - ours is less!!!)
The clean, simple front and back labels don't tell us much about this wine, other than the government-mandated alcohol level, the importer name and, of course, the health warnings. But there's a story here, similar to many in today's wine world: Winemaker Marilyn Lasserre worked in South America, South Africa and Australia before returning to her native France to make wine. She settled in the southwest, a traditional, though not celebrated, wine region, where she crafts wines under the Two Birds One Stone label intended for everyday dinner drinking. The line includes a white from ugni blanc and colombard and a rosé from cinsault. The red is carignan, made in an international style: fruit-forward, with tart-sweet flavors of dried cranberries, but also a deep-rooted acidity that keeps the wine grounded. This should appeal to zinfandel fans. Alcohol by volume: 12.5 percent. Bottle weight: 415 grams (Light). Dave McIntyre The Washington Post
