A random bottle from a recent Fukubukuro offer from Navarro. 692 cases produced of the Grenache-Carignane blend. Reddish-pink, excellent clarity. Dry, medium-to-strong fine-grained skin tannin astringency, strawberry flavor with some guava, as accurately noted on their website. Tart strawberry and mineral finish with good acidity balance. A different style and flavor profile than most rosés - West Coast, French and Italian - I’ve tried in the last few years... — 6 days ago
Now in its eleventh edition, the NV ‘XI’ Rose by Domaine Serene was partially aged in neutral French oak barrels prior to bottling. Bursting from the glass, the Rose shows a beautiful combination of poise and delicate red fruit flavors, with wild mushroom and citrus rind tones. The bright acidity and light saline streak accentuates this beautiful new release. Enjoy this on a warm summer night. Drink 2019-2023- 90 — 15 days ago
Fresh strawberries and cherries burst forth from the nose, with more of the same on the palate. The acidity is fresh and vibrant. This pale salmon rosé comes at the end of “rosé season,” but hang onto a bottle or two for Thanksgiving. It’s substantial enough for fall veggies, or turkey.

Pale pink with a hint of amber. Beautifully poised. Some fresh notes of intense oyster shells on the nose and a lovely palate of wild strawberry, rounded soft edged fruit. Delicate acidity. Very harmonious, and subtle. Great stuff. A perfect wine for an anniversary dinner. 17 years and going strong! — 13 days ago
