Tis the season for rose- time to divulge your gems of ’08

With summer around the corner, and ’08 roses beginning to stack up on retail shelves, I figured now would be as good a time as any to start talking pink. Whether or not it is an under the radar producer or a perennial stalwart, feel free to reveal what blush has already delivered the goods for you in ’08.

I’ll start things off w/ a Cotes de Provence from renowned importer Neal Rosenthal, Commanderie de Peyrassol ’08:

This light salmon colored rose smells of white strawberry, blood orange and crushed flowers. A sweet and inviting attack unfurls to a poised, razor sharp mouth-feel that has a stony, refreshing finish. It is palate cleansing and dry, and goes down so easily that you’ll be popping another bottle before you know it, 88 points.
