BEIRUT — As the U.S. was bombing Islamic State militants in Syria last week, eight wine experts were invited to the Ledbury, a two Michelin-star restaurant in West London, to sample the latest vintage from the Syrian winery Domaine de Bargylus.

Long-time Grape Sense readers know of my passion for dry rosé. The latest numbers show more and more Americans are enjoying the dry pink passion.
Vineyards In India The Nielsen growth statistics have been rather astounding the past few years. The last reporting period covered May 2013 to May of this year showed 20 percent growth in volume of imported Provence Rosé. If that’s not impressive enough, consider mid-summer sales ending June 21 for the previous 52 weeks showing an incredible 55 percent growth in Rosé imports.

When Ed Boyce and Sarah O’Herron were blending their 2007 wines, the second vintage for their Black Ankle Vineyards in Mount Airy, Md., six barrels refused to play well with the others. The wines tasted awkward and didn’t add value to the various blends the couple were crafting. So they put the barrels back in storage and forgot about them.
Winery In India After a few years in barrel detention, however, the wines had “come around,” as wine lovers like to say of late-blooming vino, like troubled teenagers who mature into successful adults. So Boyce and O’Herron blended them with some wine from 2008 and a bit from the super-ripe 2010 vintage. The result was Slate, an unusual melange of Bordeaux grapes — cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot — with syrah comprising a third of the blend. Labeled without a vintage date, the wine was so successful that it won the Maryland Governor’s Cup competition in 2011. It was Black Ankle’s third cup win: Its flagship Bordeaux blend, called Crumbling Rock, won in 2008 and 2009 for the 2006 and 2007 vintages, respectively. The 2010 Crumbling Rock took top honors in the 2013 competition.
Vineyards In India Today, Black Ankle offers Slate 2, a blend primarily of wine from the rainy harvest of 2011 (a year when Boyce and O’Herron decided to “declassify” wines and not to make a Crumbling Rock blend) with some from the successful 2010 season blended in.
