Garretson Wines

Mac user, dog guy and winemaker Mat Garretson of the Garretson Wine Company stopped by yesterday, and brought along a few of his wines.

Garretson specializes in Rhône varieties, so the wines we tried were the G White, a white Rhône-style blend; a Roussane; The Celiedh, a Syrah-Mourvèdre-Grenache Rosé; and The Aisling, a 100 percent Syrah. They are all very nicely done -- I'm sure that the G White and The Celiedh will be making multiple appearances on my deck this summer, and I hope to have the Roussane and The Aisling -- each of them an exceptional, full-bodied and delicious example of its type -- over for special occasions. Look for the big G or a Celtic-style label on the shelves of your favorite wine shop.
