Explore a collection that shows off rosé’s myriad styles and uses, plus discover a very unique homegrown “white merlot” rosé from Locust Lane Estate Winery and more!
Fresh, lithe and delicious, rosés are a staple of spring and summer entertaining. We’ve put together a collection of these sunny, easy-to-enjoy, food-friendly wines.
At five years of age, the Rioja Vega Edición Limitada Crianza 2017 (638783, 95 points, $21.95) is as vibrant as the day it was bottled. This Spanish beauty is laden with spice, cocoa, fig, toffee and forest fruit and will cellar through at least 2025, but it would also be awesome tonight!
What’s pink and white and red all over? Why, it’s this delicious rosé; Locust Lane’s “white take” on Merlot. It dazzles with notes of currant, strawberry, raspberry, blood orange and aromatic bitters. And now for my next brainteaser: what to pair it with? Charcuterie? Barbecue? Trick question! It goes with almost anything.
