Summer is Gone, but...

..Domaine Tempier Rosé still remains.

2008 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé

Many people scoff at Rosés because they are thinking of White Zinfandel. Two different styles of wine entirely. Domaine Tempier is a world class wine which happens to be a Rosé.

Light Salmon-colored, Light-to-Medium bodied, but delicate. Honeydew on the nose,then ripe Canteloupe. Dry. You also get a whiff of chilled carnations and roses. Perfumey. No heat. Sleek and silky. A wee-bit buttery with a lingering finish. I have had Francophiles disway me from buying this wine in the past, strictly because of its price ("Don't spend that much on a Rosé!."), but now after having it, I understand.

In a few months we will be launching wineclubzone.com. We will be launching a blog network and featuring top quality blogs like yours. Our main goal is to index all the wine clubs nationwide both online and offline, and let the bloggers discuss them on our forum.

We wanted to see if you would be interested in joining the network. Here would be the benefits:

1) We would use your site feed and feed in the first 200 characters of your post and link back to you as a means of driving traffic to your site.

2) We will link you from our main blog page.

In return we will ask for a 125X125 widget on the sidebar of your blog.

Let us know if this is something you would be interested in.
