Roses in July

4. Beckmen Vineyards Grenache Rose (2012)

« Prev Next » 4 of 11
Average price: $18.99 from 11 stores
Dark and fairly orange toned for a rose. This smells fruity, like jujubes and plums, and candied orange with some strawberry fruity. Broad and soft on entry, this may lack just a hair of brightness but makes up for it with loads of fresh, dry fruit flavors. The acid is certain adequate to keep this lively in the mouth and this does develop some nice complexity with air showing notes of soil, herbs and citrus pith along with strawberries on the backend before finishing with a touch of tannin and a pleasant almost bitter edge that makes me think of Campari, in a good way. There’s a lot here and this could stand up well to assertive pork dishes or simple beef preparations. 89pts

  • 1307971Linda Murfin We've been drinking a Nages rose' from France. It is a Grenache/Syrah blend. It's about $12 in Charlotte. It has a very good balance from the up-front fruit all the way through the long finish. It's not too dry but just right for sipping by itself or along with a meal. I like it with a boneless pork rib cut that we put on the BBQ.


  • 103234Mern Wow, you didn't hit on any of our favorites! Mourchon Cotes du Rhone Villages, Laphran-Veyrolles Bandol, Abiouness Nates Rose, Miner Rosato, Fisher Unity, Lasseter Enjoue or Tablas Creek! Now that we have a pool in our backyard this is our favorite thing to share with friends and is perfect with barbecue!


  • 1308265mg39 One of the most satisfying roses I've ever had was last year's Sangiovese from Alexander Valley Vineyards.It was the house rose at one of DC's top Italian restaurants last year, beating out numerous Italian rosado contenders. I haven't found the 2012 version yet, but I'm looking. This year I've been very impressed by a rose using Bordeaux varietals from Kapascandy in Napa.
