In conjunction with R-Fan Club Autumn 2013 shipment, Rockin’ R released Remain in Light (2012, an enlightening white), Pink! ( 2012, a Missundaztood rosé) and Go Your Own Way (an empowering red).
Want some inside dirt? An anonymous tipster tells me that whether you came by Rockin’ R to pick up your Fall Shipment or it was shipped directly, you should have received one of R-Rosés. While Dean intended for everyone to receive 2011 Ax L Rosé, when it came time to pull the wines for the Fall shipment, R-fulfillment warehouse claimed that wine was all gone!?! Dean began singing the Blues.
There were a few cases of Ax L Rosé in R-tasting room, but it appeared there wasn’t sufficient stock to supply all Rock-Rs. Thankfully, Pink! was in bottle and ready to be enjoyed. Thus, Pink! went out in many shipments and Ax L Rosé was announced to be “SOLD OUT.”
About a month later, the fulfillment warehouse mysteriously “found” 20 cases of Ax L Rosé. Now Dazed and Confused, Dean was screamin’ Welcome to the Jungle.
Oh well, for a limited time, Rock-Rs have two rosy choices to accompany holiday meals.
