2011 Chateau St. Martin de la Garrigue Tradition Rose

Coteaux de Languedoc, France

comment

$13 Retail

This inexpensive rose from the south of France is a fresh and lively summer quaffer. Blended from 50 percent cinsault, 30 percent syrah and 20 percent grenache noir, the wine packs a passel of light fruit aromas of ripening raspberry, spring strawberry and blood orange. On the palate, taste delicate hints of watermelon, tart red cherry, currants, citrus and spice notes, a touch of white pepper, minerality and a crisp finish. Drink it with oysters, sushi, grilled shrimp, boiled crawfish, salads, tamales, barbecue, pork and veal chops and Asian cuisines. Buy it at: Martin Wine Cellar. Drink it at: Cochon and Clancy's.
