I Dream in Pink
Rosé, rosé, rosé is here in full force! Below is a Top-10 list to get you through the hottest of days. Enjoy a safe and adventurous summer, and we will see you in September.
2017 Château Peyrassol Cuvée of the Commanderie Rosé Côtes de Provence ($23.39)
With its beginnings dating back to the middle ages, this beautiful Rosé is both elegant and mineral with bright acidity and floral red fruit. It carries a beautiful pale pink color, a lovely fruit blossom nose and finishes crisply dry with a stony touch, resulting in a Rosé that is lively, fresh and full-bodied. A classic Provençal Rosé from Neal Rosenthal Imports.
2017 Syncline Rosé McKinley Springs Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills ($18.99)
“The 2017 is delightfully fresh and complex. Presenting pure aromas of early spring strawberries and flavors of citrus zest and watermelon. A blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 33% Grenache and 27% Cinsault.” ~Winemaker notes.
2017 Dunham Cellars Rosé of Cabernet Franc Columbia Valley ($18.69)
“Opens with aromas of ripe strawberry, melon and grapefruit zest. With minimal skin contact, the color is a beautifully delicate pale pink. Lively acidity balances the crisp flavors with a refreshing minerality that provides a cleansing finish and beckons for another sip! 70% stainless steel, 30% concrete egg.” ~Winemaker notes.
2017 Beckham Estate Vineyard Olivia’s Pinot Noir Rose Chehalem Mountains ($17.99)
“We love Rosé! Named for our youngest daughter Olivia, this Rosé heralds the flavors of summer. Picked over three different passes through the vineyard and pressed right away to ferment and age in neutral barrels. There is a pale blush color, mouthwatering acidity and notes of apricots, honeydew and grapefruit.” ~Winemaker notes.
2017 Domaine de l’Hortus Rosé Pic Saint Loup Coteaux du Languedoc ($16.99)
This Languedoc Rosé reveals gourmet aromas dominated by raspberry and strawberry. Very pleasant softness and volume. Long finish is very rich in fruits, accompanied by spicy notes. A blend of 35% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre.
2017 Les Tètes Rosé Azay-le-Rideau Touraine Loire Valley ($15.99)
“Les Tètes is a small project started in 2011 by four friends, including the famous winemaker Nicolas Grosbois. The idea is simple, to propose and vinify friends’ wines, wines without making headaches. Each partner has a primary wine project, but works together to produce the Les Tètes. 60% Grolleau and 40% Gamay. Certified Organic.” ~Winemakers notes.
2017 Julien Braud “Forty Ounce” Rosé Vin de France (1L) ($15.99)
