Alpi Retiche Rosato 2018

I really like this Rose' of Nebbiolo in glowing pale salmon. A big wine with delicate complexity, equally wide and deep.

Restrained aromas of blood orange, red cherry candy, and lavender. Lands softly - creamy round texture, sour finish of cherry syrup and rosemary.

Weissherbst Spätburgunder Rose 2017

Nose has under-ripe strawberry, cotton candy, orange zest and cold stone slab.

Palate has sweet/ripe nectarine, ripe strawberry, warm clementine slice, frizzante-like texture to the finish, but no bubbles! Long finish, what an interesting wine!

Blind...no way I ever guess this as Spätburgunder!

Not sure exactly how this is classed as rosé in the Vinous world, if this wine saw any skin contact aside from the initial press operation, call me surprised.

Laughing Pig Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

Light salmon in color with a pink hue.

Fruity nose of raspberries, strawberries, cherries, spices, light herbs, citrus, limes and light vegetables.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, earth, spices, citrus, pears, red apples, minerals and white pepper.

Nice finish with spices and limes.

This is a very tasty Rosé from Oregon. Nicely balanced with a soft and elegant mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and very easy to drink, so watch out.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

100% Pinot Noir grapes. Unfiltered and unfined. A small production of only 450 cases.

Texas High Plains Grenache Rosé 2021

This pink wine is quite rich in color. Its hue is a cross between salmon orange and copper, looking very much like roses. The nose is a blast of strawberries, green parts and all, with an earthy herbal streak and a line of black pepper. On the palate, the brash rosé comes on like a red wine, with tons of flavor and a refreshing acidity. This wine’s pairing ability can reach from salads’n’seafood territory into pork chops, burgers and cheese plates. — 6 days ago

This wine is the Rose’ version of Carnuntum. Beautiful light salmon color. Blend of St. Laurant (60%) and Blaufrankish (40%). Light Aromas and intense flavors of tart strawberry, minerals and wet stones. Crisp acidity. Well balanced. — 6 days ago

Kyla Kuhlken Vineyard Tempranillo Rosé 2019

This wine shows a beautiful salmon orange color, along with a nose of strawberries, an herbal quality and tangerine peel. The palate lays out red cherry flavors laced with citrus minerality and a razor-sharp acidity which really refreshes. It is bold and even brawny, in a way - unusual for a sparkling rosé but entirely welcome. — 10 days ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Rosé Blend 2018

This was presented double-blind to the Tasting Group. The wine is copper in color with a pinkish hue, possibly due to skin contact. No signs of gas or sediment. No staining of the tears. On the nose, some slight VA, underripe stone fruit, grassy notes, slight petrol notes, olive brine, white pepper and very slightly smoky. On the palate, fruit is more pronounced; bright and tightly coiled. The stone fruits are confirmed…adding quince to the fruit set. The wine is quite floral too and there is a slightly toasted marshmallow thing. The wine is dry. Not tannic. Acid is medium+. Wonderful texture. Guesses were all over the place but when I said that it was not testable, one taster called Chateau Simone Palette Rosé which, is a really great call. Anyway, Musar Rosé ended up being too far a stretch for even this group of seasoned wine geeks. This was my first experience with the 2018 Musar Rosé and I would recommend to hold for a few years an allow to uncoil and flesh out. — 10 days ago

Ameztoi

Rubentis Getariako Txakolina Hondarrabi Beltza Hondarrabi Zuri Rosé Blend 2021

Lots of herbaceous aromas... bell pepper and jalapeños. Ripe strawberries and peppers on the palate with the same light body with added effervescence, tart acidity and lingering minerals.

Domaine du Bagnol

Cassis Grenache Blend Rosé 2019

This is wildly good rose. Nose is pure minerals and red cherry and sweet red florals. Has the intense minerality of the best rhone white with the sweet red fruit one would expect of rose say from bandol.
Overall a superb wine. Love.
