Domaine du Père Caboche Rosé

Domaine du Père Caboche Rosé 2013
Provence, France

Spring is finally in full swing. What does that mean? Rosé season is upon us! Can you hear the angels sing?

Review: Oh, this is a nice one. This wine is a beautiful salmon-pink color. It shows aromas of raspberries, red currants and a touch of lavender. On the palate it has brisk acidity, but still a soft, round body. Berry flavors are joined by zippy spices and herbal thyme. The fruit lingers on the finish leaving me wanting more. 

This wine is a blend of Grenache and Syrah. It hails Vaucluse, a region of Provence bordering the Southern Rhone Valley. It is bottled soon after pressing in order to retain its freshness.

Food Pairing: A cheese plate on a picnic. A sunset and your sweetie? Anything goes.

Bottom Line: Beautiful, soft, and full of flavor. I dig it.
