It says rosé on the bottle. It looks like a rosé. But don't be fooled. This is really a pale pinot that screams for a place at the dinner table. Classic red fruits and some blood orange, just soft enough around the edges. Super cool. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

Usually one of my favorites, seems a little broad and soft this year. Clearly cab franc though, and full of deliciousness, if not structure. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

Grapefruit! Thyme! Oregano! Hay! Got your attention, didn't I? Yup. Different, but quite compelling. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

Saline, stone fruit, and a little feral Mourvedre edge. Not necessarily a patio pounder, but blossoms with food. Roast chicken anyone? #sandiego #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

Shares a kinship with Bandol, but has prettier fruit and is a little softer around the edges. Lots of CA sunshine here without becoming plush or cloying. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

Ok. Maybe it's like comparing Kathleen Turner with Catherine Deneuve. It's all about what you're up for that night...

The most Provençe-y of rosés. Strawberry and melon, refreshing acidity, and a nice sachet of herbs over the back of the palate. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

This wine is so clean and pure, it's like rolling around in a field of wildflowers next to an alpine lake. I mean, not really, but it is lovely, minimally manipulated fruit that just sings. Yum. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

Always a great value, a definite step up in 2014. Great balance, and just plain drinkable. Rosé QPR champ. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

Sunday brunch on the patio at 11? Prefect. Light and lifted, makes the rest of the day seem like it's going to be OK. #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

My first rosé love, still just as beautiful vintage after vintage. Worth the premium price - crisp and savory, delicate fruit and depth of flavor. Who could ask for anything more? #kogodwinemerchant #letstaste10roses — 6 years ago

46ish is not a lot to spend on a classic, consistent, impressive, delicious bottle of any wine. Stop the rose discrimination.

@Molly Brooks-Thornton Amen, sister. And if you look around, you can find it sub-$40. Of course, I wish it was still sub-$30. Regardless, worth every penny.
