Pebbles, denim and wine for Popes.
Chateau Virgile Rosé 2015.

Château Virgile Costières De Nîmes Rosé 2015 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Costières De Nîmes is now part of the Rhône wine area, although wines have been made here for 2000+ years. This delightfully modern aromatic rosé is great by itself or the acidity will wash down rich bites in fashion.

Heavy melon ice bucket.

  • It's been over 90 degrees for too long now but the good news is local farmers markets are loaded with sweet heavy watermelons. New Belgium's refreshing Heavy Melon ale is also in season. That inspired me to turn one such local watermelon into an ice bucket for the ale.

Tenn. can beer flight.
Refreshing summer IPAs.

Refreshing Tennessee IPAs in cans: Tailgate Grapefruit, Saw Works Rocky Hop and No Easy Day and Mill Creek Woodshed photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Thank you brewers for bringing your crafty wares to market in cans. They're a flash to open, they get ice cold fast, they're light to pack along with you, and they're the easiest container to recycle. These four refreshing Tennessee-made IPAs are out there in cans so don't hesitate to ice them down to accompany the summer heat.

  • Tie Dye Red 2013 is an aromatic "kitchen sink" blend that smells like cherry pie with a puff of whiskey smokiness and cola spice. Very smooth for 14.5% ABV. From Offbeat Brands, makers of Zinphomaniac.

Watermelon lime sauvignon blanc.
A very jolly rosé.

Watermelon lime sauvignon blanc ros&@233; made with Bota Box and Celestial photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Watermelon is summer and vice versa in the south. When ripe red melon flavor gets with a bunch of citrus tartness you can't help but think of Jolly Ranchers. This wine cocktail is a sophisticated take on that candy, with an amazing nose and dry refreshing finish.

Nashville IPAs.

Nashville IPAs - Black Abbey Five Points, Tennessee Brew Works Cutaway Rye, Yazoo Hop Perfect, and Fat Bottom Knock Out, photo by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • It sort of has a ring to it. The IPAs could be the next team in Nashville and now there are plenty of locally brewed players. I recently poured four readily available local IPAs to take a close-up look and taste side-by-side.

I've got friends in Merlot places.

The Velvet Devil Merlot 2014 reviewed and photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • The Velvet Devil Merlot 2014 tempts you to pick it up even if you're not sure about hanging out with a Merlot. It's structured like a Bordeaux but with Washington State fruitiness.
