As the Summer kick’s off and we begin to fire up those grills heading for the beach, park or poolside this weekend, many of us will be staying refreshed by turning to that deliciously tasty ultra crushable undisputed “Summer Cool Down Champion”...I’m referring of course to the drink that makes you blush....ROSÉ!!!
Everyone has their go to, but Mike Osborn president and founder of Wine.com, says that since “rosé has such a wide appeal” his site carries more than 670 brands of the pink stuff. Wow that’s a lot!!!
With so many choices, it can be quite a challenge to navigate the endless sea of possibilities and land on the perfect option for you. We at AWB have a few interesting rosé wines from our portfolio that we would like to highlight for you…
City Limits “Pink Street'' Rosé 2020 from Two Vintners Winery in Columbia Valley AVA, WA - WE 91pts. “Syrah makes up 90% of this wine, with the rest of Sangiovese. Quite pale in color, the aromas offer notes of strawberry and cherry. A flavorful palate follows, with a zip of acidity. A portion of proceeds go to fight cancer.”
CrossHatch “Shape” Rosé 2019 from Carr Winery in Santa Ynez Valley AVA, CA - “Grenache 80% and Mourvédre 20% come together to ‘shape’ this Rosé into a well rounded and invigorating work of art. This Rosé has a light carnation pink color with creamsicle orange highlights. Strawberry, honeysuckle, grapefruit and meyer lemon aromas jump out of the glass followed by honeydew, lime zest and strawberry shortcake on the palate”
Vina de la Casa Rosé 2020 from Bruma Winery in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja MX - “This Carmenere Rosé will seduce you with its varietal authenticity and uniqueness. Light Lychee color, clean and bright. Explosive nose with red bell pepper, fresh rose petal hints, dried chili flakes and fresh plum.”
Whatever your preference you have a whole world of options to quench your thirst all Summer long….Cheers!!!
