Some reviews of the 2016 (2017 not rated yet)
"2016 Commanderie de la Bargemone Rosé, AOP Coteaux d'Aix en Provence
This is a classic Provençal rosé and still one of the best ever. If you want to get a sense of why everyone's suddenly gone nuts rosé, this wine will do it." - The Today Show, NBC

2017 Penya Rose Cotes Catalanes...$12.99
Grenache Noir and Syrah
Tasting Notes: Offers fresh aromas of Rainier cherries, garrigue, and hints of red raspberry and melon. Rich, full-bodied, yet bright on the palate.  Serve With: Great as an aperitif or an accompaniment to hearty salads, fish and shellfish, charcuterie, frittata, and more.
Cases de Pene is a tiny village in the Roussillon region of Southern France, just 30 miles north of Spain. Ceded to France in the mid 17th century, the area is still known as “French Catalonia”. We celebrate this heritage with the Catalan spelling of the ancient Château and village Cooperative: “Penya”.

2017 Le Cirque Rose...$14.99
60% Cinsault and 40% Grenache Noir
Tasting Notes: Intensely colored, with great freshness and spicy strawberry, watermelon and sage aromas. Bone dry.  Serve With: Excellent on its own, or paired with charcuterie, seafood, and fruit-based desserts.

Le Cirque is crafted by the progressive Les Vignerons de Tautavel Vingrau (VTV) cooperative in the village of Tautavel. Aptly named after the vast, amphitheatre-shaped bowl of vineyards stretching north towards Vingrau, the wines represent phenomenal values, and perfectly reflect the rugged, wind-swept terroir in which they are grown.

2017 Chateau Allegret Bordeaux Rose....$14.99
A dry rose made from Cabernet Franc and Merlot
Brilliant salmon pink with rose petal highlights.  The nose has intense apricot aromas with jasmine flowers.   It is very delicious and satisfying and full bodied. The elegant fruity flavors are enhanced by a beautiful balance between acidity and fruit. Raspberry, Redcurrant and a touch of citrus flavours extend into a long fine aftertaste. 

2017 Arrumaco Garnacha Rose...$9.99 / 750ml bottle
100% Grenache Rose
Offering impressive density and concentration, striking purity of fruit, and true and loud expressions of Spain’s classic varietals, Arrumaco has become a go-to label that has risen to the top in a crowded category of sensational values.
Tasting Notes: Lighter in color and body than many other Spanish rosés. Loaded with intense raspberry and plum aromas that follow to a crisp yet silky palate. Serve With: Excellent on its own and with a wide range of lighter fare. The perfect summer sipper and tapas wine!
