El Rancho 2012 Rosé San Luis Obispo


This wine is so elegant and lovely in style and surprisingly low in price, I bought a case. Talented winemaker Doug Margerum in Buellton described it as a classic rosé. A Rhone blend of 70 percent Grenache, 15 percent Counoise, and 15 percent Cinsault, it’s still light and dry. Pretty aromas and flavors of strawberry and raspberry are offset by subtle citrus notes, making it perfect for drinking on the porch. It’s also great with food; serve it with a picnic lunch, shellfish salad and light dressing, bouillabaisse, roast chicken, or Sunday brunch. A great buy at only $11.99, find it at California Fresh (formerly Scolari’s/El Rancho Market) in Pismo Beach.
