Rank Wine Rating Price
1 Le Roi des Pierres Sancerre Rose (2013)
Comments: Floral and dusty and vaguely of the sea, there’s nice subtlety and soft suggestions of red berry and citrus fruit on the nose. Bright and vivid one entry, this delivers lovely purity on the palate. It’s not a powerful or terribly complex wine but it does deliver intense raspberry and slightly pear tinged flavors on the palate backed up by lovely acidity and just enough sugar to add a tinge of power to the fruit on the finish. the finish is long and shows an engaging minerality that adds some steely depth to the fruit on the finale. Fabulous stuff. what more can you want from a rose? 91pts

2 Winter's Hill Dry Rose Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Oregon (2013)
Comments: Spicy on the nose with lightly candied suggestions of red cherry and strawberry fruit that show excellent intensity and purity. Nice acids open on the palate, which shows a hint of richness and lovely, pure, and slightly savory flavors of strawberry, forest floor, and a hint of spice. Moderately large scaled and fleshy, this is beautiful with a hint of earthy minerality and some herbal shadings emerging on the moderately long and succulent finish. 90pts

3 Stoller Family Estate Pinot Noir Rose (2013)
Comments: Soft red cherry fruit on the nose shows subtle hints of woodsy spice and perhaps an incipient note of spicy mushroom. Round and a bit soft on entry, this is nicely balanced but shows a slightly richer, softer side of rose. The mineral tinged flavors of red cherry and hibiscus show nicely on the palate and glide onto a fresh and juicy finish where the acids do pop nicely. 88pts

4 Mulderbosch Cabernet/Rose (2013)
Comments: All cabernet all the time here with great complexity to the herbaceous aromas of cut grass, dried herbs and bell peppers that are layered over a base of red fruit. Supple and fairly full in the mouth, there’s a hint of sweetness here that is well balanced by the solid acidity, yielding a moderately large scaled rose with relatively dark berry fruit, hints of blackberry and blackcurrant fill the palate and fade gently on the modest finish that ends with an attractive hint of blackberry jamminess. 87pts

5 De Morgenzon Cabernet Sauvignon Rose Dmz (2013)
Comments: Very Cabernet driven on the nose with obvious notes of roasted chilies and red currant fruit. A hint of sweetness on entry is quickly balanced by plenty of juicy acidity here. A fairly big and slightly chewy rose, this delivers tons of slightly jammy strawberry and red currant fruit on the palate with a hint of herbaceousness adding complexity. texturally very well knit and supple, this finishes a bit on the short side with simple and pure notes of red currants. 87pts
