Squeezing out that last bit of summer with an old standby🍂🍒

The color is rich, a deep ruby-pink that looks almost like rosado. The nose is just as rich, black cherry and earth wrapped around an herbal note that hits just right. In the mouth, a zippy acidity made me forget this is a Cabernet Sauvignon. Red fruit takes a back seat to herbs and earth. The savory edge is so great, the spice so understated, the greenness just green enough. This is a classy rosé, and for 12 bucks, it should be on your patio well chilled.

It is strange to find a rosé with the power this one has. It tastes like the right thing, not a crappy thing created to sell just a color. I had it with sushi and maybe it wasn't the perfect combination since its taste was overcoming the taste of the meal, I ended up waiting to finish the meal in order to keep drinking. Will try with meat next time.

Sour cherry, strawberry, flintstones vitamins, acid. Reminds us of a Tavel. A little bit more ripe than a typical Provençal one, but way better than expected.

Rich in color for a rosé, with a nose full of cranberry and pomegranate. The off-dry pallate is rich and medium bodied (full for a rosé) with a great balance of medium acidity and lucious ripe red fruit. A well balanced and flavorful rosé that kept me coming back for another sip. Paired superbly with marinated grilled chicken breasts on the balcony. ($9)

Hard to really give a true rating because it’s not like anything I’ve ever tried before! Totally different and in my opinion not in a great way. Just a strange combination with too much going on.

Solid red with orange tinge. Floral note in nose. Tart pie cherry, orange water and cranberry notes in mouth with white pepper and minerality in finish. Mid-tongue astringency, top of palate as well. Pleasant rounded mouthfeel, lighter style, not too acidic. A fine sipping summer wine. Great value but don't overchill

super dry without being tart. strawberries on the finish. could totally fool you for a white wine if you were blindfolded. says it's vinified in a Sauvignon Blanc style and the acidity fits the bill. just doesn't have that tart green apple, green pear flavor of sav blanc. not my preference for a rose but nice if you are looking for the dry pink stuff!
