A great rosé isn’t just for summertime and warm weather. And this pretty pink wine is great whether you drink it as an aperitif or a quaffer. Darkly hued, it’s bursting with fresh notes of strawberry, black cherry, and plum highlighted with notes of raspberry and spice. But don’t drink it too cold; that hides its elegant fruit flavors. It’s perfect paired with bouillabaisse and a very good value at $14 retail at Costa de Oro tasting room beside Hwy. 101 in Santa Maria.
