Tablas Creek 2011 Rosé Paso Robles

comment

Winemaker Neil Collins is consistent when it comes to making this tasty pink that I love each year. Its bold cranberry color speaks of the fabulous flavors inside the bottle. Zingy, ripe flavors of cherry, strawberry, and spice are nicely woven with minerals and floral notes. Grown in the estate vineyards, this year’s blend includes 58 percent Mourvedre, 30 percent Grenache Noir, and 12 percent Counoise, creating a fragrant cuvée that’s irresistible. I love most styles of Rosé, but this bold pink is preferable at the table because it’s so versatile. It’s the perfect choice for bouillabaisse, crab, roasted poultry, goat cheese, Spanish tapas, and for weekend brunch instead of bubbly. Usually $27 at the tasting room, it’s on sale until July 31 for $24.30. Tablas wine club members will only pay $18.90 per bottle. It’s highly limited in quantity, so if you love Rosé like I do, get yours soon.
