This tasty French pink wine is delightfully refreshing on warm summer days. A blend of three Rhone varieties, Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah, it’s a dry blush with aromas and flavors of bright cherries, strawberries, and raspberries. It’s a tasty aperitif and a good choice for summer picnic dishes like chilled shellfish, pasta salads with chicken or fish, pizza, or crunchy veggie salads. A delicious French Rose for just $4.99 at Trader Joe’s: It’s a steal.
