Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate

2017 Escudo Real Vinho Verde Rose...$8.99
Grapes: Touriga Nacional (60%) and Espadeiro (40%)
Escudo Real ROSE is all about the strawberry and red currants. The amazing pink color gives way to well-balanced flavors in the mouth that do super well with food. At 10.5% alcohol, this fresh fruity, slightly sparkly rose is a sunny-time must. Pink color and lively strawberry and red currant flavor complemented with floral hints reveal the exuberance of the aroma. In the mouth it’s well balanced with good acidity and tart fresh fruit notes, young and crisp. It boasts a smooth, delicate finish.

2017 Domaine Le Pive Gris Rose...$16.99
30% Grenache Gris, 30% Grenache Noir, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.
Nestled in the wilderness of the Camargue national park, Domaine le Pive is comprised of 113+ acres of organically farmed vines, with a modern, state of the art winery and historic Romanesque chapel at its center.
The plentiful sun, marine winds and distinctive sandy soils (“sables sauvages”) result in fresh, aromatic, personality-filled wines.
Tasting Notes: Offers aromas of pineapple, mango, white peach, and pear. Dry, crisp, and refreshing on the palate, with a long, lingering finish.
Serve With: Will provide immense enjoyment on its own, and pair well with a wide range of lighter fare.

2017 Boniface Les Rocailles Rosé de Savoie...$18.99
100% Gamay Rose
A true earthly paradise nestled in the French Alps, Les Rocailles is owned and managed by boyhood friends and native Savoyards Guillaume Durand and Alban Thouroude, who purchased the estate and négociant business from Pierre Boniface upon his retirement in 2006. The wines have never been better at Les Rocailles!
Tasting Notes: This mouth-watering rosé offers delicate strawberry and raspberry aromas on the nose. Light, crisp, and bone-dry on the palate.
Serve With: Enjoyable on its own, and pairs well with a wide range of lighter fare including grilled vegetable panini, charcuterie, summer fruit salad, and more.

2017 Honoro Vera Rose...$8.49
This beautiful salmon colored rosé shows hints of watermelon rind on the nose. The palate is bright and crisp with red fruit and berry notes including strawberry, cherry and finishes again with watermelon. A refreshing rosé for any occasion including outdoor dining, whether it picnics or a backyard barbecues.

2017 Cassagnau Le Rose....$7.99
This light and airy, pale-pink Rosé wine is a blend of three grapes: Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon with a hint of Cot, all three patiently tended to obtain rich, perfectly ripened fruit.
TASTING NOTE: I designed this wine with a summer evening in mind: feminine, light and airy, to be enjoyed chilled in perfect privacy beneath a shady arbour. Its pale rose-pink hue is reflected in its floral bouquet with hints of citrus fruit and spices. The palate has the typical freshness of Cabernet and a delicate mouthfeel highlighted by invigorating minerality!
“Go for the simple pleasures in life and share this wine with friends as a summer aperitif. Serve it on a crisp white tablecloth accompanied by green olives – you need nothing else! Enjoy!

2017 Donjon Minervois Rose...$16.99
40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 30% Cinsault.
Situated in Minervois, one of the oldest wine-producing areas in the Languedoc, Château du Donjon has been in the Panis family for 500 years. Jean Panis took the reins from his father, Guy, in 1996 and has taken the estate to new heights, with the historic 1998 vintage marking the beginning of a golden era that continues to this day.
Tasting Notes: Donjon’s classic, bone-dry rosé offers aromas of strawberry, cherry and plum, with a silky texture, and a long, piquant finish. Serve With: Excellent on its own, with salads, and with omelettes, it can also to stand up to chicken, sausage or ham.

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!
