“On Wednesdays We Wear Pink.”
But today we’re drinking it! Let’s Blog Over Rosé…
I love a good rosé, and while most people find pleasure drinking this during the summer season, I prefer to drink it all year round. Of course make sure you’re pairing well with your meals, if you’re not just drinking to indulge on your wine down Wednesday favorites. I’d also say branch out and leave the paler rosés for the sun and summer in the lovely France, and try something bolder, with more substance, and richness and definitely darker in hue. Pale pink is great, but a dark ruby can be just as beautiful.
LA CREMA MONTEREY PINOT NOIRE ROSÉ
Hey sunshine and cool breezes! Basically Houston in February, except this is Monterey. Pastoral, and picturesque. Ripe strawberry, cantaloupe and citrus balanced which makes for the sophistication of the perfect rosé.
Smells like white peaches. One of my favorite fruits. Definitely has character, with a fine acidity. Your tastebuds won’t be disappointed and will find satisfaction in the continuity of balance. Pairs amazing with white fishes like Branzino, and also pairs well with shellfish and chicken
EL COTO RIOJA ROSÉ
Full of juicy watermelon
and strawberry notes, this generous, orangey-pink
rosé offers a breath of summer in the depth of winter. The color recalls fresh coho salmon, which would be an excellent
thing to serve it with, too.
PURSUED by BEAR BLUSHING BEAR ROSÉ
Washington State may be more well-known for substantial Cabernets and Syrahs than rosés, but this Mourvèdre-dominated bottling, from winemaker Daniel Wampfler and actor Kyle MacLachlan, defies that. Think notes of orange peel and earthy spice, with a luscious, round texture.
CLOS LA COUTALE MALBEC ROSÉ
This Malbec based rosé is an immensely impressive first bottling (with a gorgeous strawberry hue) that deserves a place on your table. It evokes bight and juicy red berries, a touch of spices and the faintest hint of mouthwatering salinity, making for an extroverted, medium-bodied, and flat- out delicious pink wine.
DOMAINE BOUSQUET ROSÉ
This rosé ha an elegant pale salmon color. The nose shows aromas of red fruits, with hints of fresh cherries and orange peel. On the palate, it is lively with fresh acidity and a fruity finish. It pairs very well with seafood, fish, and Asian dishes.
