Not a big Rose fan, find most too thin, dry or sweet. Had a 2009 Caldwell Syrah Rose recently and it was fantastic. http://www.winelx.com

    Gary, how timely! I’m really getting into Rose’s this spring/summer, even helped make one, and have noticed my wine shops are pushing them too. I think it’s making a big comeback and shaking off that stigma of white zin, blush, and the cheap Lancers and Mateus everyone thinks of. I’ve had quite a few and they vary a lot. I like a good quality one because they are pretty darn versatile and pair with almost anything. Do you think there’s any correlation between the seeming increasing popularity of roses and the increasing popularity of Blanc de Noir Sparkling wines (which are classically roses)?

    Gary, a few years ago my wife and I were in France and sampled a number of Rose wines. They are versatile with food pairings and I hope everyone takes an opportunity to give them a go. I think too often wine drinkers are reluctant to drop $10+ on a pink wine but they are missing some good summer sipping. Let’s hope they follow your lead.

    Nice show on on Rosés! Nice cheese too. I DEF dig on washed rind cheeses.

    QOTD: LOVE rosés! Pink wine ROCKS! One of the most versatile, varied types of wines i’ve ever tasted. I was introduced a few years ago, and haven’t really found one i DO NOT like, tho some have been weak. One of my consistent favs is Rosé of Sangiovese, from Barnard Griffin. At only $10, it’s perfect lightly-chilled (50 degrees), with some red alder-bbq’d Copper River sockeye, carmelized asparagus, sauteed porcinis, and roasted fingerling potatos.

    Love the Rose…

    QOTD: The good ones that I have had combine the best qualities of white and red wine. It always reminds me of mixing a crisp chardonnay from burgundy with a pinot from CA… whatever that means?

    QOTD: I have not really experienced many rosés. I would talk about White Zinfandels because that is what my Mom really enjoys and I have had a ton in my lifetime, but those were outlawed. I do like White Zinfandel though. They are pretty light, do not pack much of an alcoholic punch, and pretty flavorful. Looks like I broke the rules anyway ;).

    I am not against roses, but it is not my first choice when I go to get a bottle, I will try and get them more into the rotation though.

    QOTD: I havent had a lot of rose, but what ive had ive enjoyed. It isnt so much Im afraid of them or think theyre crap, I just went on a spree the last year and mostly bought wines to cellar. Its time to calm down a bit and as Ive said before to buy wines that I havent tasted ( du papes, Xarel-lo, etc) AND buy wines I can drink now. #1 wine mission in the new year.
