2016 Blushing Bear Rose
/ Single Bottle
Owning a winery when you're a celebrity has become quite cliche. From Bradgelina -- or what was -- to Drew Barrymore, these days are hopefully becoming numbered. But what if you were not only a super cool celebrity who played Jeffrey Beaumont in Blue Velvet -- top three greatest movies of all time -- and Agent Cooper in Twin Peaks (let's forget about Showgirls for a minute) but actually took a large part in the winery that you owned, knew a thing or two about it and were super passionate about getting people to know about what you were doing. This person is Kyle Maclachlan. At Some Good Wine, we are big fans. Kyle has been here to sign wine bottles and over time we have become the largest purveyor of his wines in the east coast. The fact that they are delicious helps just a bit.

The 2016 Blushing Bear Rose is coincidentally coinciding with the premiere of Twin Peaks. But we would never sell a wine based on that and that alone. It has to rise above. To transcend. To be a serious rose on the serious rose wine scene. Has it made the director's cut? We believe so.
This tangy rose is 67% Grenache, 22% Cinsault and 11% Mourvédre. At first whiff, it has Provence written all over it. Fat fruit, smoke, earth and tons of minerals. On the palate there is an obvious new world essence with tangy exoticness and loads of ripe fruit. Putting aside my love for Kyle, this has all the makings of one of America's better roses. There is uniqueness, complexity and most importantly, deliciousness. Get a bottle or three and hopefully continue to enjoy this season of Twin Peaks.
