2013 Blue Plate Rosé‎ Wine

This Rosé is our response to an epic winter of 2013/14. If you're reading this in 2018 (that's awesome!), you're probably already nodding your head and saying, "Oh yeah, that was just a heinous winter. That was the winter I started truly hating snow."

Or maybe it's not so much of a response as it is a plea, a desperate and probably misguided cry to Mother Nature to get back to donning the sunnier disposition that most of us prefer.

This Rosé just embodies summer. It's bright, it's crisp, it belongs on a plaid blanket by the lake, surrounded by you and friends. You'd better surround it with some of its friends, too, though, because one botttle ain't gonna cut it. That's no way to keep friends, frankly, and we aren't about to take responsibility for you alienating your loved ones. Cheers!

2012 Blue Plate Dry Chenin Blanc

We're back for round three with the 2012 vintage of our Blue Plate Chenin Blanc. At 100% Chenin Blanc for the very first time, we're quite literally all-in on this grape, and you're going to like the results.

Vibrant fruit, crisp acidity; everything you've come to expect from our flagship Chenin. You'll be cracking the second bottle before you know it, and it's at that very moment that you should remind yourself that you are, in fact, cracking that second bottle, lest the evening slip away from you.

2012 d^ner Chenin Blanc

Blue Plate Chenin got an older brother this year, and his name is spelled with an odd non-letter that you might have trouble with upon first glance. Officially spelled "dîner" (pronounced: dee-nay), this word means "to dine" in French. Straightforward enough, no? A healthy dose of hoity-toity, with a nice little tongue-in-cheek play on the American diner concept that we've pursued via Blue Plate.

The wine, you'll be relieved to know, should offer less confusion. Or if you're confused, it'll likely be a delighted confusion. Our d^ner Chenin Blanc is a truly gorgeous wine, in the style of so many Chenin Blancs from Vouvray that consumers have come to enjoy. We hope you'll love it as much as we do.

2012 Blue Plate Grenache

You: "Finally, Blue Plate has a red!"

Us: "Hey, we heard that. Ever hear about the tortoise and the hare?"

This California Grenache is a very pretty expression of an amazing grape, and marks the beginning in our quest to provide more exposure for this under-appreciated varietal. If you're thinking that sounds a lot like the motivation behind our work with Chenin Blanc, then you might just be right. Who doesn't love an underdog?

2012 d^ner Grenache Noir

Oh my.

The "black label," as some have called our d^ner wines. This Grenache Noir kicks things up a notch. Up to a new notch entirely.

From an incredible vineyard at 2,600 feet in the Sierras, this barrel-aged, Sur Lie Grenache Noir explodes with bright, juicy fruit and will leave you wondering what type of magic we employed in order to produce this wine for $24/bottle. Well, it was black magic, naturally, as you may have guessed. But we didn't really need to connect those dots for you, we know.

2012 Blue Plate Rosé of Grenache

There come certain times in life when a thing simply must be done. "For the hell of it," you might say, or you might not. We certainly wouldn't say that, not about this wine, for this ain't no saignée.

We've been itching to make a rosé since we first hatched the master Picnic plan, and 2012 finally saw us with an opportunity to realize that goal. This Rosé of Grenache has such an electric color, you'll be hesitant to drink it. Then you'll drink it and laugh at that first notion you had to save it and admire the color. This wine is eminently drinkable, and demands an invitation to join you alongside anything that you're doing outdoors.

So refreshing, you'll want to take a bottle on your next run... probably shouldn't, though.

2011 Blue Plate Chenin Blanc

Yeah, we know, the 2011 doesn't have the slick new label. "Plus, what's with the subpar photography skills on this bottle compared to the rest?" you're thinking. Man, you're tough.

We've got a soft spot for the 2011, though, and that's because we truly found our groove with this wine. The critics responded, too, which always helps. At #28 on Wine Enthusiast's Best Buys of 2012, this is an awesome wine at an amazing price. It's drinking beautifully right now. Like, at this exact moment.
