A tasting event full of some delicious wines

Rosé

While much is being made of both the red and white wines from the Pays d’Oc, the region is coastal Mediterranean, and as such is one of the great regions for roses in the world.
 
Being winter we showed only a single rosé this evening, the 2011 Delatour Cuvée Premier Grenache Rosé ($7). A classic rosé, and the favorite wine of the night for more than one taster, this was a cool, crisp, dusty wine that cried out for food, and warmer weather! This wine, more than any this evening, reflected a look backwards in time, being produced from one of the most historically important varieties for the region, Grenache, and being made in what can only be called a classic dry yet light French Mediterranean style.
