Chateau De Roquefort-Cotes De Provence Corail-Rose-Granache-Syrah-Cinsault-Carignan-Vermentino et Clairette-France-2009-$13.98-A nose of red fruits and minerals, light pink in color.  A light bodied Rose, strawberry, herbs, minerals, a bit tart, dry finish.              WS-82               CR-86               Good with seafood, cheeses, salads.

 

Caldwell Vineyards-Varietal Collection-Syrah Rose-Napa Valley-California-2009-$25.00-A sweet nose of bright fruit, beautiful light rose color.   I am not a Rose fan……now I am, at least for this one.  Fresh strawberry, cherry, plum and cinnamon with the perfect acidity, flat out delicious.  This was Caldwell’s first Rose, hard to top perfection, perfect for summer.  I visited with John and Joy Caldwell earlier this year, great people, a must visit if your are visiting Napa.                 NR                CR-91               Good with seafood, cheese, salads.
