90+ Cellars, Rose, Languedoc, France, 2012

It is, quite officially, summer.  Summer always means the delight of long evenings, charcoal smoke filled back yards, and hot, sunny days.  During these days I always search for the perfect accompaniment to my time- something crisp and chilled, something refreshing, something to savor as the temperatures soar.  Invariably, during this time, I tend to crave the always lovely Rose wines that have been popping up all over the place the last few years.  

To kick off the season, on a recent 90+ degree day, I had the opportunity to set sail around Boston Harbor and help launch 90+ Cellars summer of Rose.  Their rose is comprised of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre, all fermented and then aged for seven months.  The result is exactly what one would want from a gorgeous glass of wine.  Highly drinkable, with notes of strawberry, a wonderful balance of acid and natural sweetness and just a bit of spicy white pepper.  Full and robust without overpowering, this is a wine that is easy to pair and to simply just sip, and at just about $12.00 a bottle- its hard to refuse!

Love it! I have an open bottle in the fridge right now. :) I was out of town during the cruise, but I would have loved to have gone.
