Allegorie Rendevouz Blend

I enter the allegorie tasting room  and can’t help but feel allegoric in my pursuit of some of the best of this small town’s Spanish varietals including a spicy Tempranillo.  The tasting counter here is unlike any other on the main street of Murphy’s. It doubles as an art gallery and local artists display contemporary works as well as beautiful designed jewelry in cases.  The tasting room attendants are friendly, informative, and passionate as if every bottle has it’s own narrative.  Owen kindly helps us through the tasting list and out of the five wines we tasted there is not one on the tasting list I don’t like. My favorites are the Petite Coquette “little flirt” white sparkling wine,  Tempranillo, Rendezvouz Rhone Style blend, and a stellar Cabernet Franc.  At the end of our tasting, Owen invites us to come back for some entertainment in the evening on the patio, where his band will play some songs and we can enjoy some dancing.

We return at 10 p.m. that evening and tucked in between Allegorie and it’s neighboring building is a little courtyard set up with tables and chairs where the band is playing and locals as well as out-of-towners are mingling and dancing the night away. Wine and dancing amidst the mountains and stars, this is wine country living at it’s best.
