2018 The Underground Wine Project “And Why Am I Mr Pink” Rosé

Cruisin’ into weekend with this Washington rosé made out of Sangiovese! Cherries, white strawberries, and watermelon notes on the nose. Similar on the palate with even more pronounced watermelon. Eminently drinkable. TGIF!

2018 Château Miraval Côtes de Provence “Studio by Miraval” Rosé

Gliding into a holiday week with some Provencal rose by Miraval. Apparently this is inspired by a music recording studio that they have on their estate where some bands that you might have heard of (Pink Floyd, AC/DC) have recorded! Peaches, white cherries, stone fruit, lemon, and rose on the nose. Simpler on the palate with peach, cherry, and a hint of strawberry notes.

Happy Monday! Kicking this week off right with this Corsican rose. Lemon, apple skin, currant, cranberry, clove, grapefruit, and fennel notes on the nose. Apples, currants, cranberries, and strawberries on the palate with a touch of fennel. Interesting and different.

La Kiuva Rosé de Vallée

Sittin’ pretty with my Italian rosé, produced via the saignée method. And this one is fresh for a thirsty Thursday. Peppered strawberries, white cherries, and cranberries on the nose. White and red strawberries on the palate with both tart and ripe cherries and cranberries. Fresh. Ripe. Versatile.

2017 Cà Maiol Chiaretto Valtenesi Rosé

Happy hump day! Time to knock back some rosé, amirite? Strawberries, white and yellow cherries, and white peach on the nose. The slightest effervescence on the palate with cherries, raspberries, strawberries, some more white peach, and a hint of stony minerality on the finish.
