Roses in July

8. Rose Eccoci (2011)

« Prev Next » 8 of 11
Previously available for $19.99
Spicy and stinky on the nose with sour aromas of carob, strawberry yogurt and blueberries. Sweet/tart on entry with flavors that show a bit of carob earthiness up front. Perhaps this is just a bit tired, but the texture is actually quite attractive with some soft fruit wrapped up with a toasty mulberry edge and all supported by solid acidity. there’s a hint of brown sugar flavor here so i expect this is just a bit too old but it certainly still show signs  that this might have been quite good last year. Develops a fair amount of old watermelon character with some air and yet finish with a long raspberry note. Still pretty good stuff. 85pts

  • 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.
