"This is one of my fovarite rosés" said Eric Asimov in the NY Times (referring to the 2014) and for good reason, as this bright and beautiful blend of Cabernet Franc and Tannat is a vibrant and refreshing wine that pairs well with salads, white meats and grilled foods all year round. The 2016 shows a bright pink/garnet color and high-toned aromas of ripe red currant, tart cherry, rose, citrus and earth. There is luscious cherry, red currant and cranberry fruit on the palate with earth, mineral and citrus flavors that continue in the very long fresh and juicy finish. This full-bodied rosé is drinking beautifully now and will cellar nicely for three to five years. Highly recommended! David Lillie
But what if we consider rosé as a wine, rather than as a prop? Who wouldn’t want a rosé like a 2009 Domaine Ilarria any time of the year? This $17 wine, a shimmering, translucent garnet in summer sun or winter snow, comes from Irouléguy in the Basque country, about as far southwest as you can go in France without crossing into Spain. As fierce as rosés ever get, it’s made of tannat and cabernet franc, and it tastes like liquid rock, combined with iron and blood. I love this wine, and it was terrific recently with roasted duck and wild rice
