Côtes de Provence Cinsault Rosé 2017

I don’t usually like rose and received this as a gift. Really enjoyed how smooth it was. Floral - fresh lilies. Not too sweet — 20 days ago

MCA Rosé James Berry Vineyard Counoise Cinsault 2017

Striking corral color with coppery overtones. Very floral on the nose with stone fruit and melon. Richer, bolder style of rosé with great balance of fruit and acidity and lingering finish. Sourced from a block in James Berry Vineyard composed almost entirely of Counoise with a bit of Cinsault. Up and coming winemaker Mark Adams has crafted a beautiful wine in his Rhône meets Paso style. $30. — 16 days ago

The Blacksmith Barebones Paarl Cinsault

Fun-ass juice up in here. Bright, crunchy red fruits, a little earth, and some dried herbs whispering gently on the palate. Cinsault may not be the most complex of grapes, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t among the most satisfying. — 8 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Cinsault 2015

2015, but felt like it was in its way out or maybe had experienced some heat. Either way, was still good. Some cranberry and herbal notes but had a woody and jammy character once on the palate. — 9 days ago
