And I’m not talking about the Black Eyed Peas song, which is playing through my head now.
I can’t get enough of rose or “pink” wines — and I’m talking the super dry (not sweet!) pink wines that are super refreshing and that just dance in your mouth.
Tonight it’s the Starmont Rose 2013 from Merryvale Vineyards in Napa Valley. Salmon color, watermelon and citrus on the nose, and gorgeous peach on the finish.
Lettie Teague of the WSJ just did a story on summer rose wines — of course, when in doubt, go with a rose wine from Provence (Bandol) or Travel. Check out some pink wines from the USA too… I recently enjoyed some terrific Rose of Pinot Noir from Oregon….and this delicious number from Texas’ own Pedernales Cellars.
Below are some other terrific roses to check out.
