While the trend nowadays is for lighter bodied and colored roses, there’s nothing more satisfying than an intense, richly flavored and colored Tavel. Especially from a great producer. An extra kick of ripeness from the warm southern Rhône helps too.

Great rose. Abv scared me a bit at 13.5, but this wine delivers. Rose petal, raspberry, wild herbs, fennel bulb and med acidity. Really cool.

Fresh and juicy #Tavel #wine. Straight forward all around. Some high cherry syryp aroma. Round body and volume on the palate. Flavor is hollow. Watermelon and strawberry, quick. Opened 9/22/17

Continuing with my exploration of rosé wines, is this charming not so pink from Château de Trinquevedel, a cranberry-hued blend of 56% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 10% Clairette, 4% Syrah, 4% Bourboulenc, 3% Mourvedre and 3% Brenache blanc. Enchanting aromas of linen and dried cherries lead into a wine that displays tons of rhubarb and spice, followed by Queen Anne’s Cherries, blood oranges, and watermelon rind with subtle earthiness and smoke on the finish. Always a favorite from Kermit Lynch. 13.5% ABV
